How to Make It

Step 1

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

Step 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 in a circle about 1/2-inch larger than the cheese. 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.

Step 3

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

Recipe Tips

  • Flavor Variation: For Brie en Croute Provençal, 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.
  • How to Thaw? Thaw time may vary.  Pastry should unfold easily but still be cold after thawing.  At room temperature, thaw unwrapped pastry for no more than 40 minutes.  In the microwave, wrap pastry in paper towel and microwave on HIGH for 15 seconds, then turn it over and microwave for another 15 seconds.  If it doesn’t unfold easily, microwave for another 5 seconds on each side.

    Great recipe and lots of compliments, too. I've made it with Gouda cheese and it equally as good.

    Holiday Brie en Croute

    A definite winner! I have had only a few problems with getting a proper "thickness" of the pastry in the preparation phase. If rolled out too thin, the filling will definitely cook through the pastry while in the oven. Overall, this item made a GREAT cornerstone on my appetizer table!
