Cook and Tell: Baked Brie in Puff Pastry

12 Apr

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
Brie Cheese
1 egg or egg white (for brushing)
Cooking spray


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!

    Your addition of caramelized onions sounds delish :)

    Made these with some added caramelized onions for lunch today. They were amazing! I love the idea of making them in individual packets like this.

    These are a fantastic snack! Decadent, yes, but absolutely worth it. I love brie too, but it can be dangerous to have around :-D

    Do you think this would work if I added some jam or prosciutto?
