Food Around The World: Baked Brie

Rachel Ray's Baked Brie

Our food club is doing the country of France this month as it's theme. I love room temp brie spread on a stone wheat cracker! I've always heard of baked brie, but have never tried it. So I figure this would be perfect time to try it out! I got the Baked Brie recipe from Rachel Ray's T.V. show site. I normally look at a recipe and change it around when I make it. I did not do that with this one. I also figured out that there IS a difference between puff pasty & phyllo dough!

1 sheet frozen prepared puff pastry, 11 x 17 inches, defrosted
1 wheel brie cheese, about 5-inches round
2 tablespoons raspberry jam
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1 box water crackers, recommended brand Carr's

Preheat oven to 350°F. 
Slice brie in half across the middle.
Spread the puff pastry sheet onto a counter and roll it to an 1/8 of an inch thick. 
Place half of the brie onto the puff pastry. 
Spread the jam on top. 
Sprinkle the almonds on the jam.
Replace the top half of the brie. 
Wrap dough up and over the brie, starting at the corners.
Turn over so the sealed side is underneath. 
Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. 
Serve with crackers. 


  1. It was very yummy! Thank you for sharing with us on Sunday! Love you!

  2. That looks delicious! I never think of eating brie. I need to broaden my horizons!

  3. Love you too Michelle!

    @Alwayzbakin Kelly suggested that I just wrap it in crescent roll dough instead next time and I might like it better. It would be easier I think too.
