Author: Sandy


  • ½ of a 17.3-ounce package Puff Pastry Sheets, (1 sheet), thawed according to package instructions
  • 1 8-ounce Brie Cheese Round
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Water
  • ½ cup Fig Jam (or cranberry sauce, seedless raspberry jam, chutney)
  • ½ cup Chopped Pecans (plus a few for garnish)
  • 2 Tablespoons Warm Honey


  • Heat oven to 400°F. Unfold the pastry sheet on a cutting board. make sure the seams from being folded don't have holes. If they do, just pinch them closed.
  • Place pastry sheet onto a baking sheet pan. Place the cheese round in the center of the pastry sheet.
  • Spoon the jam onto the cheese round. Then sprinkle on the pecan pieces.
  • Fold the pastry up, starting with the corners, over the cheese round to cover it. Press the seams together to seal.
  • Whisk the egg and water together in a small bowl. Brush the seams and the entire exposed area of the pastry with the egg mixture. You won't use all of it.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is a nice golden brown. Then remove from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes before transferring to a serving plate (It is best to bake the Brie to the point that it is gooey, but not completely melted so that it can hold its form).
  • Drizzle the warm honey all over the top, and a few chopped pecans. Serve with crackers or bread.


For Larger Size:
  • If you use a larger wheel of Brie, such as a 20-ounce size, you may need both of the puff pastry sheets that come in the package.
  • Increase jam and nuts to your liking.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
