This is so simple to make yet tastes delicious. My husband accidentally picked up a wedge of brie cheese instead of the wheel, but it still worked fine with 1 puff pastry sheet folded over it. I left the rind on the brie, brushed all the places where the puff pastry sealed up with egg white and baked it in an 8x8 Pyrex container. I slathered on the Apricot preserves without measuring it and only a tiny bit leaked out. Although it says to serve immediately, I wonder if letting it set might not be better so the cheese doesn't ooze out like liquid since it's so hot. I enjoyed the leftovers more, maybe because the cheese wasn't oozing. I cut off just enough to eat and microwaved it on high for 30 seconds. My husband tried it this way and thought it was delicious. I didn't need to have crackers with it, the puff pastry was enough.
Fill prepared mini tart shells with Brie cheese, pear, and thyme for a great sweet and savory party appetizer your guests will love.
Loved, loved, loved this simple and elegant recipe! I actually used a 13 oz round of brie, and had plenty of pastry to cover. I was a little concerned about cutting the soft cheese in half, so I put it in the freezer while my pastry sheet was thawing. Cut beautifully. I used raspberry preserves, made beautiful pastry leaves and berries for the top, and served on a cake platter with fresh raspberries around. Wonderful! This would be terrific for the holidays. Thanks so much for sharing! Addendum 12/28/08: please note, I place the brie in the freezer only 30 minutes, I do not freeze it, just give it a good chill to set it up for easy slicing! Hope this helps clarify, Wendy
I don't like Brie at all but all my guests loved this! I used a lot more preserves though adn doubled the puff pastry as others recommended.
