  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
  2. Slice one wheel of Brie cheese in half so you have 2 circles of cheese. Spread apricot or peach preserves on (the cut side) half of one circle of brie. Make sandwich out of the two halves of Brie, so that the preserves are in the center of both halves. Wrap the entire wheel of Brie with one sheet of puffed pastry and flip the entire concoction onto the prepared cooking sheet so the seam is on bottom. Brush the puffed pastry with the egg white.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the pastry in golden brown. Serve immediately.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I made this for Christmas Eve. I used philo dough because that is what I accidentally bought instead of puffed pastry. I used 7 sheets and brushed each sheet VERY LIGHTLY with melted butter. ...

This is a very good brie recipe. Some advice, make sure you bake it on a pan that has sides, so that if the pastry brakes open, the oils from the cheese don't melt all over your oven (speaking ...

Very good idea with the perserves we used a sugar free strawberry from Polaner. We generally make brie and serve an adriatc fig spread on the side so this was a nice deviation from the normal. ...
