Baking tips

Puff pastry: This recipe requires half of a 17-ounce package of frozen puff pastry, please note that you need to thaw it before use. I think the easiest way is to glue half of the pastry to a zipper and let it thaw overnight.

You can also defrost it on the counter, but you don’t want it to become too hot. You want the pastry to thaw enough to roll, but still cold enough so that the butter does not melt. I would say that it takes about 30-40 minutes, depending on the temperature of your kitchen.

If you think the dough has become too hot, wrap the brie cheese and cool the plate in the refrigerator before baking.

Double Crust Brie: As mentioned earlier, this recipe uses half of the shortcrust pastry you fold on Brie. If you want, you can use two slices of pastry to make double-crust brie cheese.

First, cut one of the pastry slices into a circle that is one inch larger than the brie circle. Next, place the brie in the center of the pastry circle and add the nuts and raspberries. Then, brush a layer of egg wash on the exposed pastry, place the second shortcrust pastry on top of the brie cheese and smooth it.

Use egg liquid as the “glue” to press the top pastry on the bottom pastry. Finally, trim the top layer to the same size as the bottom circle, and use a fork to seal the two layers by pressing the fork against the circumference of the pastry.

Baking skills: If the pastry browns faster than the brie cheese center heating speed, then you can cover the brie cheese with a piece of tin foil. This will help prevent the pastry from burning when the center finishes heating.

Make them mini:

This recipe can be used to make mini Brie pastries suitable for personal consumption.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with tin foil or parchment paper.
  2. Cut the puff pastry into 3×3 inch squares.
  3. Cut the brie cheese into 1-inch cubes. Only cut enough cubes to match the number of pastry cubes.
  4. Place each cube on a square pastry. Add a ball of jelly and a few nuts to each brie cheese block.
  5. Fold the pastry over the brie cheese and pinch the pastry to seal.
  6. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until cooked and golden brown.

Service Suggestion

I think pastries and cheese can be easily eaten with a fork, nothing else.Lol you can put the grilled brie in the center of the tray and wrap it with something and spread the cheese on top

  • Cookies-any type
  • Baguette
  • French bread
  • Apple or pear slices

Variety

I like the simplicity of this cheesy dish. The almonds pair well with the brie center. However, if you want to customize it, of course you can. Some ideas include:

  • Drizzle honey on top.
  • Change nuts. Chopped pecans or macadamia nuts will be delicious.
  • Replace the raspberry with another flavored jelly, such as our Jalapeno Jelly.
  • Replace the jelly with a savory layer such as basil pesto or sun-dried tomatoes.
  • Use cranberry sauce instead of jelly and add orange zest on top of each pastry before baking.
  • After wrapping the pastry around the cheese, you can apply a layer of egg wash to get a beautiful golden brown surface. In a separate bowl, whisk together an egg and 1 tablespoon of water. Use a pastry brush to spread it evenly on the dough and bake.
