Baked Brie Recipe

I always come home with an empty plate when I take this special appetizer to holiday parties. It looks fancy but is actually quite easy to make. —Carolyn DeKryger, Fremont, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min. + standing YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 round (8 ounces) Brie cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • Assorted crackers and fresh fruit

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, beat the butter, cream cheese and flour on low speed until mixture forms a ball. Divide in half and wrap each portion in plastic wrap; refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • 2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each portion into a 7-in. circle about 1/8 in. thick. Place one circle on an ungreased baking sheet. Place Brie on pastry and top with remaining pastry circle; pinch edges to seal. Flute bottom edge if desired.
  • 3. In a small bowl, whisk egg and water; brush over top and sides of pastry. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from the baking sheets. Let stand for 30 minutes before serving. Serve with crackers and fruit. Yield: 8 servings.
