  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degree C). Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan.
  2. Slice the wheel of Brie in half, horizontally, so that the halves are two, flatter wheels of Brie. Lay the puff pastry in the pie pan. Place half of the Brie (rind-side down) onto the pastry dough. Sprinkle almonds evenly over the top. Place the other half of the Brie (rind-side up) over the almonds. Bundle the pastry dough around the Brie.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

This is just heavenly. I don't use the almonds, and I spoon plenty of apricot preserves over the brie before wrapping and I think this adds the extra kick it needs. Also, for those of you willing to try, this recipie works well with phyllo dough. Just brush melted butter over top of brie, then add preserves, and wrap in 4 sheets of phyllo that have also been brushed with butter. Trim excess dough and freeze. This is very important and should also be done with the puff pastry version. If you don't freeze, the cheese is completely liquid by the time the dough is done, and so this way they both come out perfect. Bake according to package directions.

This is good, but needs a bit more to it. When I make it, I don't use almonds, but I put chopped sundried tomatoes and lots of crushed garlic and sometimes some capers. Serve with a variety of crackers. This is amazing and everyone always loves it.

This is such a great basic recipe for baked brie. There are some other recipes on this site, but this is the most basic. I've added preserves, dried fruits, and different toasted nuts... all work great. I love brie but the rind always bugged... so I remove it. I know there are some cheese connaisseurs out there who think different. P.S. If your pastry comes out soggy or greasy, you need to up your oven temp to 400 because it means your pastry is melting and not "puffing".

It's essential that you completely enclose the brie in the pastry dough! Mine must have had a small crack or hole...because when it came out of the oven..all of the brie and almonds had made this lovely crunchy mass next to the puff pastry mound and had left barely anything in the inside of the pastry. So be sure to close up the holes. It all tasted really good though...regardless of its fragmented presentation.

This recipe is fabulous!!! I filled mine with apricot preserves along with the almonds and brushed with egg whites as suggested! Thank you so much to Veronika for the tip on freezing before cooking! The pastry came out wonderfully cooked and the cheese was perfect! This was THE hit of our party!

Easy, I used refridgerated crescent rolls instead of puff pastry.

This is fantastic as a Christmas appetizer. I have made this four times already this month! It is fabulous. I fill the centre with seedless raspberry jam (I put the jam through a sieve) and fresh rasberries. Once the brie is enveloped with the pastry I brush it with a beaten egg before baking. I also put fresh raspberries on top and serve the whole thing alongside water crackers. YUM. At least a dozen people have already asked for the recipe.

This recipe was wonderful with a couple modifications. I mixed the almonds with an apricot/crushed pineapple sauce I made. Then I added a teaspoon of dijon mustard to the sauce. I used reviewer Veronika's suggestion about freezing it before baking. WOW! It came out looking and tasting so wonderful.Thanks idea Nancy.
