3-Ingredient Baked Brie

Sometimes you plan an incredible spread for your dinner party and realize day-of that you forgot the apps. Sometimes that friend who you depend on to bring a charcuterie board or chips n' dip or cheese bailed last minute. Sometimes neither of those things have happened but you still say to yourself: I need baked brie ASAP. 

Whatever your reason, it's three(ish) ingredients to a fruity, nutty, and aromatic cheese centerpiece that might leave your party too content to move on to that main course. 


  • Sheet of puff pastry (store bought is fine, or we like this recipe)
  • 8-ounce wheel of brie cheese
  • Half-jar of Schmutz (we like Fig Hazelnut)
  • 1 egg (optional, we did say three-ish ingredients)


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. 
  2. Roll out puff pastry until round and about 1/8" in thickness.
  3. Unwrap your wheel of brie and set it flat. Cut off the top rind, so the brie looks like a kiddie pool.* Set the brie in the center of the puff pastry.
  4. Place a few generous spoonfuls of Schmutz on the top of the brie, and spread evenly to cover.
  5. Fold the puff pastry over the top of the brie, trimming off any excess with a knife or kitchen scissors.
  6. If using the egg: make egg wash by whisking the egg with a splash of water, until well-combined. Brush thin layer of egg wash over the 
  7. Bake for 15 minutes. Serve warm.



*Is it safe to swim in a pool of brie? Probably not but maybe if my everyday haroset company takes off, we can fund that experiment
