Baked brie in puff pastry (also known as brie en croûte) is an elegant cheese appetizer, and it doesn't take a pro to prepare and bake it. You can make this appetizer in just 10 minutes – it's easy enough for a quick family meal and fancy enough for a Christmas party or special occasion.
One baked brie, many flavors
Baked Brie is also versatile. Use your favorite sweet jam or jam in the recipe (fig jam is the most popular), or make it with a savory jam like pepper jelly or try caramelized onion or bacon jam. Whole cranberry sauce and chutney are excellent alternatives. Feel free to add chopped toasted walnuts, almonds, or pecans for extra texture.
Can you eat the bark?
The rind of a brie loaf is edible and adds to the cheese's unique flavor, so there's no need to remove it. If you prefer it unshelled, you can cut it off before wrapping.
How to serve baked brie
Serve the brie on a round plate or platter with a cheese knife or butter knife and crackers, sliced fresh apples or pears, toasted baguette slices or breadsticks.
