Baked Brie

Brie wrapped in pastry and baked until it has thoroughly melted inside is one of the world’s easiest yet tastiest appetizers. The brie is topped with a sweet jam, wrapped with pastry and coated with maple syrup.


  • 1 sheet of puff pastry dough, if frozen let thaw until pliable
  • 1 round of brie cheese
  • ¼ cup of chopped walnuts or other nuts
  • Apricot jam, or other sweet fruit jam
  • Maple syrup
  • Brown sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. The thin top rind of the cheese can be carefully cut off with a sharp knife if desired. The rind is edible so this doesn’t have to be done. The rind helps the crust stay with the cheese when served.
  3. Spread the puff pastry out on a non-stick cookie sheet and center the brie round on top. Spread the jam on the Brie and sprinkle the chopped nuts evenly over the jam.
  4. Pull the dough over the top of the brie, folding the sides. Twist the ends of the dough together. Drizzle maple syrup over the dough and sprinkle brown sugar on top.
  5. Bake at 350º for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Can be served alone or with slices of fruit, and crackers or thin slices of French bread.
