I always come home with an empty plate when I take this special baked brie recipe to holiday parties. It looks fancy but is actually quite easy to make. —Carolyn DeKryger, Fremont, Michigan

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


  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.
