Ingredients

  • 12 - 13 ounce wheel of brie (I used Ile de France)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, defrosted, rolled out to 11 x 11 inches
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water

Instructions

  1. Roll the puff pastry into 11-inch square.  Check to make sure this provides enough room to fold over your brie and seal up... if not then roll your pastry out a little wider.  Place brie in center and top with 2 tablespoons of honey and half the almonds.

  2. Fold up the corners of puff pastry one at a time, brushing all the dough with the egg wash as you go, using it like glue to hold the pastry together. Continue to brush the egg wash over the top and sides of the dough after formed.
  3. Bake the brie at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, then carefully pull the oven rack out without removing the brie from the oven. Quickly drizzle with a tablespoon of honey and sprinkle with the remaining almond slices. Slide the Brie back in the oven and continue baking for another 10 minutes.
  4. Be careful to not let the almonds burn.

Recipe Notes

The almonds and honey on top of the puff pastry will burn if you bake them too long.  That's why I recommend you add them after the brie is half baked.
