Flaky Brie En Croute

Recipe Snapshot



Total Time

1 hour




Preheat an oven to 400F. While it’s heating, roll out the sheet of puff pastry either on a lightly floured surface or on a piece of parchment paper until it’s about 11-inches x 11-inches.

Roll out the puff pastry


Use a serrated knife to slice off the top rind. Cover the top of the cheese with ½ cup fig jam (or sour cherry jam), spreading into an even layer. Top with ⅓ cup chopped toasted pecans.

Prep the brie


Place the puff pastry directly over the top of the Brie, then carefully flip over and secure the excess pastry by pressing down and sealing. Place the Brie en croute sealed side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Wrap in puff pastry


In a small bowl, whisk together 1 large egg and 2 tsp heavy cream. Use a paring knife to score the top of the dough with an X. Be careful not to cut all the way through the pastry.

Brush with egg wash


Sprinkle the top with sea salt, then bake, rotating the sheet pan halfway through cook time, or until the puff pastry is golden brown.

Bake the Brie in puff pastry


Allow the Brie to cool for 10-15 minutes before serving. If you like, drizzle with truffle honey (or regular honey). Recommended for serving: baguette, crackers, apple slices, or other fruit!

Rest, then serve
