frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 (8 ounce) round
seedless raspberry jam
YUM! I'd like to also offer a twist on this recipe. I cut the frozen puff pastry into small rectangles or squares, brushed the pastry with beaten egg, and filled with approximately a teaspoon of brie, a approx. teaspoon of seedless raspberry jam, and a sprinkling of crushed walnuts. I folded each little piece of pastry over on itself to make either a triangle or a square/rectangle shape, poked a hole in the top with a fork and brushed the top with egg. They make delicious breakfast/tea party pastries.
Also, I tried the same thing with black cherry preserves and it was wonderful! The artisan puff pastry from Trader Joe's came out light and crisp and perfectly browned in a 400 degree oven.
Just did not work for me. You could not taste the raspberry flavor and the puff pastry did detracted from the flavor of the cheese. Very pretty presentation though.
Try splitting a small brie in 1/2 horizontally (a wire works well) & put the jam & walnuts inside. Then wrap with phyllo, puff pastry or crescent roll dough. This makes a spectacular presentation & its own "bread" to eat it with. bake @ 350 about 30 - 35 min.
This was fabulous! I wasn't sure what to serve with it as far as crackers, etc. so I took the suggestion of using mini fillo cups. It's the perfect little appetizer size! I put a couple thick cubes of brie in each cup, let that bake @ 350 until it became a little soft, then added a nice covering of raspberry jam and a few chopped walnut pieces before letting them finish baking for a couple more minutes. Even our kids loved these! Thanks!
I just wanted to add a not as the recipe submitter. I noticed some question about what to serve it with. I serve it usually with hearty crackers, toasted pieces of baguette, and crisp sliced apples. I also really like the idea of making individually wrapped little bries.
I love brie and raspberry together! I only get to make this at the holidays cause the kids aren't fond of this cheese. I have made it as the recipe states, however this time I decided to use pillo cups and I think I like them better. I cut the cheese into small chunks and placed into cups. Halfway through baking I topped with the jam. Yum!
Made this with raspberry jam and sliced almonds and wrapped in crescent roll dough (what I had). It was great and had a good contrast of textures.
4 people nearly ate the whole thing before dinner! I didn't expect this to be the 'hit' of the dinner, but it dominated much of the conversation. Before baking I did drizzle some real maple syrup and brown sugar on top to brown it. Very good.
