Brilliant Baked Brie

Baked Brie is a popular and delicious appetizer, perfect for entertaining or taking to gatherings. It is a soft, creamy cheese, with or without buttery, flaky puff pastry. Baked Brie is easy to prepare and can be made with a variety of delicious ingredients. Make it savory or sweet, the options are endless.

Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Unwrap a wheel of Brie and place it onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Top the Brie with your chosen ingredients. Popular options include apples, walnuts, and honey. You can also add your favorite herbs and spices for a more flavorful twist.

Optional: Once the Brie is topped, wrap the entire wheel in a sheet of puff pastry. Make sure the pastry is sealed around the Brie, so the toppings stay inside. Cut a few small slits in the top of the pastry to allow steam to escape. Bake the Brie in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown.

Omit puff pastry if you do not have options for gluten-free pastry at the store or homemade.

After baking, let the Brie cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. Serve the Brie whole, with a knife on the side for guests to cut slices. The cheese will be soft and creamy, with a crunchy, flaky crust. Enjoy the Brie with crackers or sliced baguette and your favorite accompaniments, such as sweet jams, pickles, and fruits.

Baked Brie is an easy and delicious appetizer that is sure to impress your guests. From the creamy, cheesy center to the crunchy puff pastry, Baked Brie is sure to be a hit at any gathering. Try different toppings and accompaniments for a unique twist on this classic dish.
