This easy, creamy baked brie recipe is perfect for the holiday season. Wrapped in puff pastry and topped with roasted tomatoes, it’s so flavorful.
1 tbsp olive oil
5 oz cherry tomatoes
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp cracked pepper
1 sheet store-bought puff pastry (thawed)
250g wheel of brie cheese
Preheat the oven to 425F and prepare one baking sheet with parchment paper.
Allow one sheet of puff pastry to come to room temperature + soften, either in the fridge or on the counter.
Add the cherry tomatoes to a small cast-iron skillet or baking dish.
Drizzle with olive oil, add salt & pepper.
Roast for 20 – 25 minutes, until golden on top. Set aside.
Set the baking tray into the oven for 10 minutes while you prepare the wrapped brie.
Carefully slice off the thin layer of rind from one side.
Roll out the sheet of puff pastry onto the counter and place your wheel of brie on top.
Cut the puff pastry 2 -3 inches around the brie wheel.
Next, using your hands, fold one edge of the dough over the side of the brie. Repeat until all edges are wrapped around the brie.
Whisk the egg in a small bowl, and brush the entire surface area of puff pastry. This will create a nice, golden brown color.
Remove the baking tray, with parchment paper, from the oven and set the wrapped brie on top.
Bake for 20 minutes, then add the roasted tomatoes on top.
Bake for another 5 – 10 minutes, until golden.
Serve immediately with fresh chopped basil and crackers.
With the extra puff pastry dough, you can make twisted straws! Cut the puff pastry into long strips, about 1cm in width. Brush the strips with egg wash and sprinkle salt + pepper on top. Hold both ends of one strand, and twist in opposite directions a few times, and set onto a baking tray with parchment paper. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown. Add any extra spices or cheese!
Roast any of your favorite vegetables to serve on top of the brie! Make it sweet by omitting tomatoes, and adding maple syrup + toasted nuts instead!
Enjoy this dip with toasted sourdough, pita bread, tortilla chips, or crackers!
Store in the fridge in a tightly sealed container for 4 – 6 days. Reheat to serve.
