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

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’

    Oh Susan, this is awesome! I have made many a baked brie and never thought to pair it with apricot, which is odd, because it is my favorite jam! I can’t wait to try it!

  2. A five star recipe indeed. For me the combination of goats cheese and apricot sounds like plain perfection. I must try this over the Easter holidays for sure. Thank you so much for sharing!

      Thanks Ramona! It’s actually made with brie cheese but goat cheese would be good also!

  3. This is such a delicious recipe! I love baked brie and the idea of putting apricot preserve sounds yummy!

  4. I love baked or fried cheese with something a little fruity, this sounds heavenly and I don’t care what my cardiologist says 😉

    • simplysundaysfoodblog

      The apricot counteracts the brie so your cardiologist would give you the green light! lol

    Isn’t baked brie in puff pastry the best? It’s so easy and you can use any jam or preserve, so versatile! I love that it’s so impressive too!

  6. Oh my! I love this! Total decadence! and unbelievably do-able! Thank you for my next party trick!
