apple pie baked brie
i am in total shock. my parents arrive in 10 days. this means that thanksgiving is just a little more than two weeks away. by the time my parents head back home i will be in full holiday hustle. this time of year is busy for everyone, but at our house it is simply crazy.
thanksgiving, stella’s birthday, christmas, new years, my MIL’s 80th, and we conclude the holiday hustle and bustle with charlie’s 18th birthday. that alone has me stress eating cookies by the dozen.
i’ll be party planning my way through january, and this year i am keeping it fun and easy. thanksgiving is pretty much set, turkey and the fixings, but the rest of the season it is all about the charcuterie and this apple pie baked brie. i am ALL about the charcuterie. for entertaining it doesn’t get much easier. some cheese, some bread + crackers, some meat, jams, jellies, cornichons, grapes, berries.
along with that i love to include a few fun and easy appetizers. this apple pie baked brie is an impressive addition to your appetizer lineup, comes together in minutes, and is out of this world delicious. how can you go wrong with puff pastry, brie, and apple pie filing? you can’t. plus it’s ready in 30 minutes. that is a party win for sure.
apple pie baked brie
- 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed according to package instructions
- 1 wheel of brie (6 - 8 ounce)
- 1 cup of apple pie filling
- egg wash (1 egg whisked with 2 Tbsp water)
- 2 tsp sugar mixed with 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- preheat oven to 375 degrees
- line a baking sheet with parchment paper
- roll pastry into a circle (doesn't have to be perfect)
- place brie in the center, and top with the apple pie filing
- fold pastry over the brie overlapping to fully enclose the cheese and topping
- brush pastry with egg wash and press to seal the seams
- sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar
- bake for 25 minutes, and serve hot
this apple pie baked brie is delicious, but no holiday party would be complete without the wine
just like holiday entertaining, great wine doesn’t have to be expensive, Cameron Hughes is an exceptional wine at an extraordinary value. when your calendar from novmberber – janurary is full every weekend with holiday fetes, this is extra important. the better the price, the more options i can offer my guests. a few reds, a few whites (this chardonnay is one of my faves), and just like with a charcuterie,there is a little something for everyone.
