Brie & Apricot Puff Pastry

There’s nothing like creamy Brie cheese topped with sweet apricot preserves baked in a light and flaky puff pastry

This is a simple appetizer that is elegant enough to start off your Holiday gathering and flavorful enough to stand up to a Superbowl Game day snack table

You’ll need a wheel of Brie cheese, a sheet of puff pastry and good quality apricot preserves

Defrost the sheet of puff pastry according to the package directions and roll out

Place pastry in a pie plate, add the Brie wheel in the center and top with about a cup of apricot preserves

Fold each corner into the middle and pinch the seams so the puff pastry is sealed

Mold into a circular shape and pinch the middle points into a cone shape

At this point, you can cover in wax paper and wrap the entire pie dish in plastic wrap and chill overnight if you are not baking immediately

When you are ready to bake, brush the top of the pastry with a beaten egg

Let the Brie puff sit 5 minutes before cutting into it

Serve with your favorite crackers, toasted baguette or apple slices

 This creamy deliciousness could only be elevated by serving with a crisp Chardonnay  Just sayin’
