Onion Brie Appetizers Recipe

Guests will think you spent hours preparing these cute appetizers, but they're really easy to assemble, using purchased puff pastry. And the tasty combination of Brie, caramelized onions and caraway is terrific. -Carole Resnick, Cleveland, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min. YIELD:18 servings


  • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 4 ounces Brie cheese, rind removed, softened
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons water


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook the onions, butter, brown sugar and vinegar over medium-low heat until onions are golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove with a slotted spoon; cool to room temperature.
  • 2. On a lightly floured surface, roll puff pastry into an 11x8-in. rectangle. Cut Brie into thin slices; distribute evenly over pastry. Cover with the onions; sprinkle with caraway seeds.
  • 3. Roll up one long side to the middle of the dough; roll up the other side so the two rolls meet in the center. Using a serrated knife, cut into 1/2-in. slices. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets; flatten to 1/4-in. thickness. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • 4. In a small bowl, beat egg and water; brush over slices. Bake at 375° for 12-14 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.

"I brought these to a gathering last night and they were a hit! I didn't have a pastry brush so I didn't use the egg wash and that MAY have been why I needed to bake them longer than recommended - about 10 minutes longer to get them golden brown. Very easy!"

"These were delicious and easy to make. I thought it wasn't enough ingredients but once they are rolled up it really is the perfect amount. I will make these again and try different ingredients like cheddar and bacon maybe. Or swiss and mushrooms endless possibilities."
