Chloe in the Kitchen ~ Baked Brie

There is nothing my guests like better than to see my hot, gooey brie come out of the oven.  I make it extra special by cutting the brie  in half and adding some nice surprises inside.  Apricots, cherries, almonds and some brown sugar make this pastry covered brie a big hit at my house!  Baked Brie with dried cherries and apricots and toasted almonds inside recipe.

A beautiful and tasty appetizer using brie and frozen puff pasty - so easy and elegant.
Ingredients
  • One 8 inch wheel of Brie or Camembert

  • ¼ Cup of dried apricots (chopped to the size of raisins)
  • ¼ Cup toasted sliced almonds
  • 2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 Egg whisked
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Unwrap your Brie and using a sharp knife warmed by running under hot water, slice the wheel of cheese horizontally and take the top half off the bottom half and set aside.
  3. Mix the cherries, almonds and brown sugar together and spread the mixture on the bottom half of the cheese.
  4. Set the top half back on the wheel, over top of the mixture.
  5. Press it down to secure the mixture in the middle.
  6. Take out a sheet of thawed puff pastry and unfold it. Set the Brie wheel on the puff pastry and wrap the pastry all around the wheel.

  8. Place the wheel on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  9. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until the pastry is turning a nice golden color.
  10. Lower the temperature to 325 and bake for another 20 minutes.
