If you’re after an amazing crunchy gooey baked brie in puff pastry recipe, then you don’t need to look any further. This recipe is super simple but will also amaze your friends and family if you plan on cooking afternoon tea for them.
I find that the smaller wheels of brie work best for this recipe. Larger wheels may require multiple sheets of puff pastry and could become a bit of a pain getting it off the baking tray.
You can easily just leave the puff pastry off of the cheese if you’re just looking for a baked brie. The result is still just as good but you will out on that lovely flaky pastry around the cheese.

Baked Brie in Puff Pastry Recipe
- 1 wheel of brie (4.5 oz./125g)
- 1 sheet of puff pastry
- 1 Egg
- Preheat an oven to 200 °C or 390°F.
- Beat 1 egg in a bowl and place to the side.
- On a baking tray lined with baking paper, place the puff pastry.
- Place the wheel of brie in the middle.
- Using a pastry brush, brush the outer edges of the pastry with the egg mix.
- Now fold the pastry in and gently squeeze the pastry together in the middle.
- Brush the egg mix over the top.
- Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.
- Remove from the oven.
- Serve & Enjoy.
- You can try adding some different ingredients into the cheese/pastry. I have seen recommendations of sliced almonds, apricots, raisins and much more. All these will add a bit more of a variety of flavor to this yummy dish.
- It is important to make sure your puff pastry has almost completely thawed before using it. If you try to use it too early/ while it is still frozen, then it may crack, and you will end up with holes in the pastry.
- You should try and be careful of having an area with too much puff pastry. This mistake is likely to occur when you’re folding the pastry into the center. If an area is too thick with the pastry, then it is likely to not cook properly in the oven leaving you with icky undercooked pastry.
