Continuing on with the carb theme. Today I wanted to share a simple appetizer with you. It came to me as I was sitting at home and craving a snack. My husband is a big fan of Brie. He buys the big rounds of Brie, so we almost always have it at home. I tend to keep a package of puff pastry squares on hand as well. Together these two great ingredients make a quick, easy and delicious snack, or appetizer.
Baked Brie in Puff Pastry
Puff Pastry Squares
1 egg or egg white (for brushing)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Cut each puff pastry square into 4 small squares. Cut Brie into small pieces (without crust) and place each piece of cheese on the small puff pastry squares. Fold each of the four corners of each puff pastry square over the cheese, creating little pouches. Place the folded puff pastry pouches onto the cookie sheet.
Beat one egg. Brush each puff pastry pouch with the beaten egg.
Cook for approximately 25 minutes, or until the puff pastry pouches are golden and nicely puffed up.
There it is, simple and delicious. I can pop these babies in like chips. I know it’s probably not the greatest idea, but they are so so good!
