Here is a simple, easy-to-make pastry that is absolutely delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 round of chilled Brie Cheese, 6-8 oz.
  • 10 inch round of puff pastry
  • 3 tablespoons of all purpose flour
  • 10 inch round of puff pastry (rolled out to 1/4 inch thickness)
  • 1 whole egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon of cold water

Directions

  • Place the puff pastry dough on a lightly floured surface
  • With a rolling pin, roll the dough quickly to a 1/4 inch thickness (working quickly with the dough will keep it cooler, allowing it to become more flaky)
  • Using a brush, brush the beaten egg to lightly coat the dough. This will act as the glue
  • Place the chilled brie in the center of the dough
  • Fold the dough over the sides of the cheese, pleating the upper edges to fit snuggly around the cheese
  • Punch the dough together in the center to form a seal
  • Brush the outside of the dough evenly with the egg wash
  • Place on a prepared baking sheet lined with parchment paper
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes
  • Preheat oven to 375°
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes until the pastry is golden and crisp
  • Let rest for 5-10 minutes
  • Transfer it to a platter and serve it with cracker and your favorite compote or jam

and Enjoy!
