Baked Brie
This is a very easy appetizer to make, an a big hit when served at a party.

Take a small round of nice brie and trim the sides just a bit, let warm.

Thaw and roll out puff pastry with a rolling pin (basically follow the directions). Place the warmed brie on the puff pastry and fold the dough over the brie sealing the pastry with egg wash or water. Put some design on top made out of the leftover pastry trimmings.

Place on parchment paper and cook in the WFO at about 400 degrees F until lightly golden brown, about 10 minutes. (if in conventional oven, a cookie sheet can be used)

Let stand a while so it's not too runny when cut into.

Serve on serving dish with apple slices (dipped in lemon juice) and crackers.

Re: Baked Brie
Another yummy sounding delight! You must be a great host!

How the heck do you get the parment paper in and out of the oven without a cookie sheet?

Re: Baked Brie
I once had brie that was covered in bread crumbs and then fried. This one also sounds delicious - with the added advantage that you can make it in the WFO.

Re: Baked Brie

Sounds great and definitely worth a try. Do you use young Brie or aged Brie, which has a stronger flavour and deeper colour? I'm definitely tending to the aged Brie these days, and, no, it has nothing to do with my personal calendar, which I can't seem to find.

Re: Baked Brie
George, the cookie sheet is used for the conventional oven. You could definately use it for the WFO too if it fits through the door;)

The brie comes off the sheet easily because it's greased by the puff pastry.

The parchment is recommended for the oven if you are going to do it on the hearth and transfer it with your peel.

CJ, any of the small/medium round bries will do. I'll eat any of them!

..... great tasting foods that are simple to make top my lists!

Re: Baked Brie
For a little kick try spreading jalapeno jelly on the puff pastry then the brie, wrap and bake.

Re: Baked Brie
I'd like that BC:)

another option Vaughn tells me is to put sliced almonds on the brie before closing up.....
