Holiday Brie en Croute

Makes: 12 servings
Prep 15 mins Bake 400° 20 mins Stand 45 mins
Holiday Brie en Croute
  • 1/2 17.3 ounce package  Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed
  • 1 13  ounce package  Pepperidge Farm® Cracker Favorites Quartet
  • 1  egg
  • 1  teaspoon  water
  •  All-purpose flour
  • 1/2  cup  apricot preserves or seedless raspberry jam
  • 1/3  cup  dried cranberry
  • 1/4  cup  toasted sliced almond
  • 1 13 - 16  ounce  Brie cheese round

1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.

2. Sprinkle the flour on the work surface. Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 14-inch square. Spread the preserves on the pastry to within 2 inches of the edge. Sprinkle with the cranberries and almonds. Place the cheese in the center of the pastry. Fold the pastry up over the cheese to cover. Trim the excess pastry and press to seal. Brush the seam with the egg mixture. Place seam-side down onto a baking sheet. Decorate with the pastry scraps, if desired. Brush with the egg mixture.

3. Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Let stand for 45 minutes. Serve with the crackers.

From the Test Kitchen
  • Flavor Variation: For Brie en Croute Provencal, omit the preserves, cranberries and almonds. Stir 1/4 cup diced jarred sun-dried tomatoes, 2 tablespoons olive tapenade and 2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts in a small bowl. Spoon the mixture in the center of the pastry sheet. Top with the cheese and proceed as directed above.
