Brie Puff Pastry Recipe

Brie Puff Pastry Recipe

My husband was in the Air Force so we've entertained guests in many parts of the world. I acquired this recipe while in California. It's one of my favorite special appetizers. —Sandra J. Twait, Tampa, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. + standing YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 round (13.2 ounces) Brie cheese
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/4 cup apricot jam
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • Assorted crackers

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°. Cut Brie horizontally in half. Sprinkle blue cheese over bottom half; replace top.
  • 2. On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry into a 14-in. square. Trim corners to make a circle. Spoon jam onto center of pastry; sprinkle with almonds. Top with Brie. Lightly brush edges of pastry with beaten egg. Fold pastry over cheese, pinching edges to seal; trim excess pastry as desired.
  • 3. Transfer to an ungreased baking sheet, seam side down. Brush top and sides of pastry with beaten egg. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 4. Immediately remove from pan to a serving plate; let stand 45 minutes before serving. Serve with crackers. Yield: 10 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
