This quick and easy recipe comes from Instagram creator @socialspreads. You need only six ingredients to make this pumpkin baked Brie at home.
- 1 puff pastry sheet, thawed
- 1 4.4 oz wheel Brie cheese
- 1/3 cup pumpkin butter or apricot jam
- 1 egg white, beaten
- 1 cheese twist or pretzel stick
- Fresh sage leaves
Step 1: Wrap the Brie
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lay the puff pastry on the parchment paper. Spread the pumpkin butter in the center and put the Brie cheese on top. Wrap the puff pastry around the Brie and pinch the edges to seal it. Cut off any excess puff pastry dough.
Step 2: Tie the puff pastry
Cut 6 pieces of baker’s twine or butcher’s twine. Tie each individual piece of twine around the pastry, spacing them evenly apart. Keep the knotted side on the bottom, opposite the smooth pastry side.
Step 3: Bake the pumpkin Brie
Brush the top and sides with the egg wash. Bake the puff pastry filled with Brie for 20 minutes until golden.
Step 4: Decorate and serve
Allow the baked Brie to cool before carefully cutting and removing the twine. Use the cheese twist or pretzel stick to tuck fresh sage leaves into the center on top, creating a pumpkin stem and leaves. Learn how to make baked brie with jam.
Tips for Making Baked Brie
- Display this pumpkin baked Brie with a plate of crackers, or create a whole Halloween charcuterie board, with the baked Brie at the center.
- While this recipe uses pumpkin butter or apricot jam, you can certainly switch up the flavor—I’d try raspberry or cranberry.
- Sprinkling crushed walnuts or pecans before baking will add a great crunch.
- If you don’t have fresh sage on hand, use mint or basil to complete the pumpkin look.
