    This recipe requires a little bit more time than most of my appetizers, but is totally worth it.

    How to Make a Brie Wreath

    • Cut a brie wheel into multiple circles using a knife or petit four cutter. If using a knife, you can roll the brie into balls to help make the wreath consistent in shape and size. If you’re really lucky, you’ll find brie bites / individual bries in your grocery store to speed up the process, otherwise it just takes 5-10 minutes to cut them yourself. how to make a brie wreath
    • After rolling out your puff pastry dough according to package instructions, place your brie rounds on the pastry and cut squares around them. how to make a brie wreath
