Easy Baked Brie in Puff Pastry

Easiest baked brie EVER! Brie cheese topped with jam, wrapped in puff pastry or crescent roll dough, and baked until melty. Delicious!

  • Prep time: 5 minutes
  • Cook time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 6 to 8

Ingredients

  • 1 large sheet of puff pastry dough or 1 tube of refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 1 round or wedge of Brie cheese (do not remove rind)
  • 2 tablespoons raspberry jam, or other sweet jam
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup

Method

1 Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). 

2 Slice the top off the brie: If you want, start with chilled brie and use a sharp knife to carefully cut off the thin top rind of the cheese. This may help the crust stay with the cheese when served. The rind is edible so you don't have to do this step if you don't want to.

3 Place brie on puff pastry: On a lined baking sheet, lay out the puff pastry or the crescent rolls flat. Place the brie round or wedge on top of the puff pastry.

4 Spread jam on top, fold dough over brie: Spread jam on brie, fold dough over top, cutting off excess dough. Drizzle maple syrup and sprinkle brown sugar on top.

5 Bake: Bake at 350ºF (175°C) for 30 minutes, pastry should be golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Serve with crackers or apple slices.
