  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 small (8 oz) wheel brie cheese
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, (package comes with 2 sheets)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • crackers, for serving


Preheat oven to 375°F.


Defrost 1 sheet of puff pastry for approximately 15 to 20 minutes and unfold (place remaining sheet in freezer for later use). Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Saute walnuts in butter until golden brown, approximately 5 minutes. Add the cinnamon and stir until walnuts are well coated. Place walnuts on top of Brie and sprinkle brown sugar on top of nuts.


Lay the puff pastry out on a flat surface. Place the brie in the center of the pastry. Gather up the edges of the brie, pressing around the brie and gather at the top. Gently squeeze together the excess dough and tie together with a piece of kitchen twine. Brush the beaten egg over top and side of Brie. Place Brie on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes until pastry is golden brown.
