A Classic: Brie en Croute

Tuesday, November 24th, 2015

Brie en Croute is a classic. It’s simply a wheel of brie cheese wrapped in pastry and baked. We like to add some raspberry preserve to ours but it can be served either way. Brie en Croute is a great last minute appetizer because of how simple it is. There are only 3 ingredients! We can’t think of something easier to make.


1 wheel of Ile de France Brie Cheese

1 Sheet Frozen Puff Pastry

1/2 Cup Raspberry Jam

1 egg and 1 tsp of water, combined in a small dish


Preheat oven to 375. Roll out puff pastry dough on a floured surface into a 14 inch square. Place brie in center of dough. Spread a good layer of jam over the brie. Then take the egg wash and brush along the edges of the puff pastry. Bring the puff pastry up to the top to wrap over the brie. Lightly press to seal. (Some of the jam may ooze out but that’s okay!) Then brush more egg wash over the puff pastry to help seal. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with crackers and sliced apples!

Monique’s baked brie with fruit preserves won’t take long but will be a big time crowd pleaser! Serve it up at a dinner party or as a snack at a casual get together and get ready for the compliments!


Start out by letting your puff pastry sheet thaw out- don’t leave it out too long or you might have to roll it out like me because it was stuck together.

Cut the brie in half and then spread a generous amount of preserves.

Once you smear your fruit onto the cheese, sandwich it back together and wrap it with the brie. Trim off excess dough.


Attempt to make a pretty design with it. : )


Bake in the oven at 375 for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Let sit for a few minutes and serve with crackers, toasted bread and garnish with fresh fruit.

This is a definite crowd pleaser. Looks nice, tastes great and is easy easy easy to make! Please bookmark this and bring it to your next potluck or family gathering!
