Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Defrost puff pastry according to direction.
  • Slice the brie wheel in half horizontally across the middle, so that you have two thin brie wheels.
  • Roll the almond paste into a circle slightly larger than the brie wheel and about 1/8-inch thick. Use the brie container to cut a round of almond paste the same size as the brie wheel. (If you don’t have a container, just cut a circle around the brie itself.)
  • Layer the almond paste circle in between the two brie circles.
  • Form a small ball with the leftover almond paste you cut away in Step 2. Roll it out so that it is 1/8-inch thick, and cut enough 1/4 strips to encircle the top of the brie wheel. Press them down to form a rim around the top of the brie wheel. (It doesn’t have to be pretty – this all gets covered up.) This rim helps to contain and keep the jam in place during prep and cooking. Fill the recess with jam. 
  • Place the prepared brie wheel in the center of one sheet of room temperature puff pastry. Gently pull the edges together at the top as if you were wrapping a package, and twist slightly to seal. Place the pastry covered brie on an ungreased glass pie dish, cookie sheet, or brie baker.
  • Optional Step: Cut straight across the top-knot to flatten the top, and then add decorative shapes, as shown below. If you would prefer to just leave the top-knot as is, that works fine too. (For reference, I skipped this step on the brie shown on all the fruit and cheese tray pics in this post. It was just twisted and baked, as in Step 5.) 
  • Whisk together egg white and one tablespoon water. Using a pastry brush, apply an egg white wash to the entire pastry.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 40-50 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
  • Serve with whole grain crackers and sliced apples.
