This Weekend in Hedonism (Segment 3)

  • Cheryl's Recipe Corner!
  • Baked Brie
  • Ingredients
    • 1 package of Frozen Puff Pastry (17oz ounces
    • 8oz wheel of brie cheese (leave rind on)
    • Toasted nuts (optional)
    • 1/4 cup preserves (any flavor you wish; apricot, raspberry and strawberry are delicious), optional
    • Slices of baguette bread (well toasted, you'll be spreading the cheese on these pieces)
    • Slices of apple (again, you'll be spreading cheese on these)
  • Directions
    • Remove the puff pastry from the box and inner wrapping, and defrost for 20-30 minutes (until it's pliable and unfolds easily).  Places a sheel of aluminum foil on your rimmed baking pan, and spray well with non-stick cooking spray, and preheat oven to 425.  Once your puff pastry has become pliable, unfold and place your brie in the middle of the square.  If you choose to use preserves and nuts, spread both of these on the top of the wheel of brie (preserves first, then nuts), then gather up the pastry and turn it into a pouch with the cheese/preserves/nuts inside.  Bake at 425 for 20-25 minutes (just until the pastry turns a toasty golden color); remove from oven and let stand 5-10 minutes for the cheese to firm up (and not be a molten volcano when you cut into it!).  Serve with well toasted baguette pieces and apple (or pear) slices. NOTE: Russ and I do NOT put anything inside the pastry with the cheese... but we do drizzle honey and toasted slived almonds on top AFTER it comes out of the oven.
