Brie en Croûte (in Puff Pastry): An Irresistible Appetizer that will Take 5 Minutes of Your Time

This recipe was given to me more than ten years ago. I modified back then and this is how I have prepared it ever since. I have to say I liked the result very much, and it is one of my favorite recipes because it may be used as an appetizer as well as a starter.

Brie en Croûte (in Puff Pastry)

An easy appetizer to prepare on a Friday evening or for a party.

  • Chopping board
  • Chef's Knife
  • Rolling Pin
  • Baking sheet
  • Brush
  • Small bowl
  • Fork or small whisk
  • 250 g brie
  • 150 g cream cheese
  • 400 g puff pastry (rolled out)
  • 40 g pecans (chopped)
  • 15 g maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 4 apples (it may be an assortment, since each ser de distintas, pues cada una aportará una variante distinta al queso)
  1. It’s extremely easy. In fact, it is something that may be prepared with the help of children. Cover the brie with the cream cheese. It should be completely covered, therefore, it might be a good idea to take it out of the refrigerator before starting to work with it.
  2. Flatten the puff pastry being especially careful that it is not extremely thin to break when manipulating.
  3. Line a baking tray with wax paper and place the puff pastry. On top of the pastry place the cheese in the middle and then put the finely chopped pecans. Coat with the maple syrup.
  4. Wrap the cheese preparation with the puff pastry. Beat the egg and use it as an egg wash to brush over the puff pastry.
  5. Bake at 180 °C or 350 °F until golden.
  6. Serve with apples on the side cut in segments. I prefer an assortment of Gala, Granny Smith, and Pink Lady.

I think it can also be prepared with individual cheese portions, but in reality I have never tried it, even though I’m sure the work will be more delicate and meticulous.

Also, I have to share with you that this time I served the cheese with strawberries because I was out of apples. It worked out fine. The fruit is needed to make the dish fresher and lighter.

Enjoy!

P.S. And yes, it is one of my favorite recipes.
