Stuffed Brie

Undoubtedly, cheese elevates almost anything, but when it's nestled within a flaky puff pastry, the culinary experience becomes truly exceptional. I adore this recipe for its versatility—you can tailor the ingredients to suit the season or your specific flavor cravings. Simply choose a jam, incorporate nuts, and/or add fruits that align with your desires at the moment. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination. 

Serving: 4-6 people
Time: 40 minutes


  • 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 round of brie cheese (about 8 oz)
  • 2-3 tablespoons fruit preserves/jam (apricot, raspberry, or fig)
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • Optional toppings: nuts, honey, fresh herbs
  • Crackers or baguette slices, for serving


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  2. If the brie has a rind on the top, you can choose to remove it or leave it on for added flavor and texture.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the thawed puff pastry sheet slightly to ensure it's large enough to wrap around the brie completely.
  4. Place the brie in the center of the puff pastry sheet.  Spread a layer of fruit preserves on top of the brie. This adds a sweet contrast to the richness of the cheese.
  5. Gently fold the corners of the puff pastry over the brie, sealing it completely. You can twist or gather the pastry at the top to create a "parcel" effect.
  6. Brush the entire surface of the puff pastry with the beaten egg. This will give the baked brie a beautiful golden color.
  7. Place the prepared brie on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the puff pastry is golden brown and puffed.
  8. Add optional topping if desired and enjoy!
