How to Make It

Heat the oven to 400°F.  Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork or whisk.  Stir the cherries, pecans, honey and rosemary in a small bowl. Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 14-inch square.  Cut off the corners to make a circle.  Spoon the cherry mixture in the center of the circle.  Top with the cheese.  Brush the edge of the circle with the egg mixture.  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 the top with the pastry scraps and additional rosemary, if desired.  Brush with the egg mixture. Bake for 25 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Let stand for 45 minutes.  Serve with the crackers.

    Dried Cherries, Pecans & Rosemary Brie en Croute

    Next time, I'll make sure to seal the seams better, some cheese melted out. I'm not sure what to do about the white covering on the brie, I cut it off and not sure if that was the correct thing to do. Turned out great though.

    OMG! I took this on a girlie weekend and the crowd went crazy. I even cooked it at home then just reheated it at the cabin. The Rosemary gives it that wow factor. All the girls want the recipe.

    Dried Cherries, Pecans & Rosemary Brie en Croute

    Living in the cherry capitol of the world, I just had to try this, but made a couple changes. I soaked my homemade dried cherries in brandy over night and used sliced almonds, saving a few to place on top. Also, I saved a bit of the cherries to put on top of the cheese before closing the puff pastry over the top

    Dried Cherries, Pecans & Rosemary Brie en Croute

    I made this appetizer for our Christmas party last weekend and it was a hit. It was so tasty and gone in about 15 minutes. I should have made three! Everyone was asking for the recipe! It's a little expensive to make (with the brie and cherries), but I think you could also use cranberries and walnuts. I can't wait to try different variations of this.

    Absolutely delicious and so easy to make. I was passing out copies of the recipe to guests at the end of the evening. So simple and so elegant for a holiday gathering. Flavorful and festive!
