Baked Brie with Raspberries

This baked brie is one of my favorite appetizers.  When I first made this Brie en Croute, I wasn’t sure about the combination of raspberries and rosemary, but it is lovely!  We have a neighborhood ornament exchange tonight with the option of bringing a bottle of wine or an appetizer. I wasn’t going to miss a good excuse to have a few nibbles of this delightful hors d’oeuvre.

I’ve made this appetizer for my book club, dinner parties and taken it to numerous events. In fact, I made two of this Baked Brie with Jam in Denver for my sister’s massive art open house and had to give out the recipe!

 

How to Make This Baked Brie with Jam:

  1. Mix fresh raspberries with jam and minced fresh rosemary to top the Brie.

      2. Remove the top rind of the Brie, place the Brie on a sheet of puff pastry and add the raspberry topping.

      3. Fold the puff pastry over the Brie and trim away the excess. Use a cookie cutter to cut decorations from the puff pastry scraps if desired. Brush with the egg wash and bake as directed.

PRO-Tip: Remember that puff pastry puffs best when the puff pastry is cold and the oven is hot, so you may want to put the wrapped Brie in the fridge for a half-hour before popping it in the oven.

What is Brie en Croute?

Brie en croute is the French phrase for Brie in Crust. Brie is the soft, creamy French cheese with a rind that can be wrapped in puffed pastry and baked for a show-stopping appetizer!

Can Brie en Croute Be Made Ahead of Time?

Yes! To make this raspberry baked Brie ahead of time, just make and bake as directed, then refrigerate until a few minutes before you’d like to serve it. Reheat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes or until the Brie is soft. 

Do You Take The Rind Off Brie Before Baking?

It’s a personal preference. Removing the top rind will make it easier to scoop out servings, but it also could allow the melted Brie to ooze out of the pastry while it bakes.

What Do You Serve with Baked Brie?

Sturdy crackers are the classic pairing with a Brie en Croute, but garnishing with grapes and serving with slices of apples and pears are delicious options.

Where Can I Find Brie Cheese?

Brie is now readily available at most grocery stores with the cheeses in the refrigerated section. For this raspberry baked Brie, a high-quality Brie is not necessary. A round of Brie from 7-14 ounces will work well.

Enjoy! I hope this becomes a regular appetizer for when you’re entertaining guests. Nothing better than gooey Brie, sweet berries with jam and puff pastry!
