Baked Brie Stuffed with Strawberry
Preserves and Toasted Almonds

Makes about 8 servings


This impressive nibble is delicious, quick to make, and can be prepared in advance.


1 wheel (2 to 3 pounds) of Brie
1/2 cup strawberry preserves
1/3 cup toasted almonds, finely chopped
1 pound frozen puff pastry, thawed
Vegetable oil cooking spray
1 egg yolk


1. Carefully lay the cheese on its side and using a long, sharp knife, horizontally cut in half.

2. Spread the preserves on the cut side of the bottom layer of cheese. Sprinkle on the nuts. Replace the top half of the brie.

3. Roll out the puff pastry into a circle, about double the diameter of the wheel of Brie. Place the Brie in the center of the pastry. Gather up the edges and decoratively twist together. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours wrapped in plastic.

4. Preheat the oven to 375° F. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

Beat the egg yolk and brush over the pastry. Bake about 40 minutes, until the pastry is evenly puffed and brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.
