Baked Brie

Tis the season!  It seems there is never a shortage of holiday parties to attend, often where you are asked to bring an appetizer or side dish.  This baked brie is one of my favorites because it’s unbelievably delicious and SO simple!  Guests are always raving about it.

Easy Baked Brie - this crowd pleasing appetizer serves 15! www.julieblanner.com
This crowd pleaser is one of the easiest appetizers I make that serves 15.  I serve on a platter or pedestal with spreaders.  
2 Tbsp walnuts or pecans
1 puff pastry sheet, thawed 20 minutes
1 20 ounce brie
1 egg
1 Tbsp water
flour
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Unfold pastry on floured surface, sprinkle sprinkle flour {on rolling pin/pastry sheet} and roll to 14″.  Place cheese in center.  Fold pastry over the cheese to cover it.  Trim excess and press to seal.  Beat egg and water in small bowl.  Brush seams with the mixture to coat the pastry.  Bake 25 minutes or until golden.  Allow to stand 20 minutes before serving and sprinkle with nuts.  
Best served with water crackers, apples, toasted baguette.   Try serving it with preserves!  Yes, it is as good as it looks!

Don’t miss my summer version of this favorite!
