Brie is the ultimate party cheese – and bite-sized baked Brie is the ultimate party food!
Served warm, our lusciously creamy French Brie is fabulously delicious. Baked Brie is a classic party appetizer made by dousing a wheel of Brie cheese in fruit preserves and covering with puff pastry. With the creaminess of melted Brie, sweetness of fruit and crispiness of flaky pastry - what's not to love?
Individual serving-sized baked Brie pops are a fun new spin to a classic dish. Slicing into baked Brie can get a bit messy, so serving individual sized portions on sticks provides all the deliciousness with none of the mess or need to utensils. Perfect for summer parties!
It only takes a few ingredients to get started – here's five easy steps to make Brie pops. It's a great recipe for kids to try, too!
Makes 24 Pops in about half an hour
4 oz. Ile de France Brie cheese
2 sheets of thawed puff pastry
Approx 3 oz. your choice of fruit preserves
1 egg, beaten
Dash of milk
Step 1: Cut puff pastry into thirds, then cut each segment into four circles approximately 3 inches by 2 ¼ inches.
Step 2: Whisk the egg and add splash of milk, then brush half of the circles with the egg wash.
Step 3: Place one stick on each of the egg washed circles and press gently. Cut a small bite of Brie (with or without the rind) and place it on top of egg wash and stick, then top with about ½ tsp of fruit preserves.
Step 4: Take a circle without any egg wash and stretch it out just a little to make it slightly bigger, and then place it on top of the cheese and jam. Seal the edges with a fork. Poke the top with fork to prevent air bubbles.
Step 5: Preheat oven to 375 degrees, place pops on a lined baking tray, brush egg wash and sprinkle salt. Bake until golden brown.
