Brie en Croute


Brie en croute is a french name for a full wheel of brie covered with a puff pastry and heated up in the oven, so the cheese is lightly melted with the constrast of the crunchy pastry.

This recipe is my take of it with a twist of Christmas in it.

Ingredients:


(Enough for 8 people)

1 wheel of brie cheese (125g)
A roll of pastry dough
1 cup Assorted nuts
3 tbsp honey
1 egg

Preparation:

Pre heat your oven to medium heat.

Open the dough, measure and cut the size of dough you will need to cover all around your brie, with a little extra space for the nuts.

In a bowl mix the nuts with honey.

On the dough put the nut mixture in the shape and size of your brie.

Put the brie on top of the nuts.

Fold the dough to cover all the brie.

To glue the dough, use the egg beaten slightly.

In a baking tray, turn your brie boundle upside down, so the nuts are on top and the brie on the bottom.

With a fork make some holes on the top of the dough, so it won´t burst.

Grease the top of the brie dough with the egg beat.

Put it in the oven on medium heat for 25 minutes.

Take the brie out and let it cool for 10 minutes before serving!
