Ingredients

Choose your measure:

Pastry

Filling

  • One (8-ounce) wheel Brie
  • 1/2 cup apricot or raspberry preserves

Egg wash

  • 1 large egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Cut one-quarter of the pastry from the finished recipe, then wrap and reserve for another use.
  3. Divide the remaining pastry in half and roll one half out to 1/4˝ thick. Take a 7˝ plate, invert it over the pastry, and cut out a circle of dough with a sharp paring knife. Repeat with the other half of the dough. Set aside with any scraps of dough to cut out decorative shapes for the top.
  4. Fold the pastry up and around the cheese, making pleats in the dough as necessary. Use a little water to seal the pleats together. Spread the preserves on top of the cheese.
  5. Brush the outside inch of the second circle of dough with water and place it, wet side down, over the cheese. Smooth the edge of the top dough around the pleats, patting them to seal.
  6. Cut out any decorations you like from the scrap dough and place on the top of the Brie, using water to adhere them to the surface.
  7. Place the cheese on a parchment-lined baking sheet and brush all over with the egg wash. Bake for 25 to 28 minutes, until the pastry is a deep golden brown all over. Remove from the oven and let sit for at least 15 minutes before transferring to a serving plate and serving warm.
  8. Refrigerate any leftovers wrapped well.
