Christmas Brie

Baked Brie is a kinda a holiday party must. Or, at least, it should be for hosts. It's the easiest hors d'oeuvre to put out that looks and sounds fancy but literally takes 5 minutes to assemble—unless you're making it into an adorable gift. Using puff pastry turns this easy appetizer into the cutest present of all. 

To turn a wheel of Brie into a gift, you just need puff pastry and egg wash. First, spread a little bit of jam in the center of one sheet of pastry. We used raspberry, but seriously any flavor works here (we were even thinking whole cranberry sauce might be nice). Place the Brie on top of the jam and tightly wrap the pastry around the cheese, tucking in each corner as you go. Flip the wheel over: It's time for the bow. 

Slice the second sheet of pastry into thin strips and form a bow on top of the brie, using egg wash to seal each piece. Then brush egg wash all over the brie so it gets extra golden. Bake until nice and warm on the inside, and you have perhaps the best Christmas present of all.





Flour, for work surface
2 Sheets puff pastry, thawed
1 (7 oz.) round brie
1 tbsp. raspberry jam
Egg wash, for brushing puff pastry
Crackers, for serving



  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Unroll 1 puff pastry on a floured work surface.
  2. Smear raspberry jam in center of puff pastry. Place brie on top of jam.
  3. Fold corners of pastry around brie like you would a present. Seal with egg wash.
  4. Cut second sheet of puff pastry into strips. Wrap two long strips around brie to create base of bow.
  5. Cut long strip into smaller pieces to create ribbon for bow. Seal onto brie with egg wash in a bow shape.
  6. Place brie on a parchment-lined baking sheet and cover all over with more egg wash.
  7. Bake until deeply golden, about 15 minutes.
  8. Serve with crackers.
