Do you enjoy baking? What about Holiday baking? I love to bake, but especially around the holidays. David & I were in Costco the other day when we came across this GIANT bag of chocolate chips. I added it to the cart and my husband looked at me like I’d lost my mind needing THAT Many chocolate chips. I shrugged and said, “It’s baking season, love!” Since that trip, we’ve purchased another Costco sized bag (haha). Now seeing as how I’ve burnt myself out on chocolate chips, we’ve moved onto other baking goodies, like Brie. 🙂
Today I wanted to share with you all the tasty little recipe that my husband & I threw together. It’s SO simple, SO yummy, and perfect for your holiday parties!
To get started, you will need:
A puff pastry
Joan of Arc Brie (Double or triple creme is best)
Eggwash with cinnamon/sugar.
Make your cranberry sauce and set it aside to cool (We put ours in the freezer while we finished up everything else)
Next, dice your Brie.
FUN TIP: You can use a sharp knife to cut around your cheese rind then take a string -we used floss- and tie it around, pull it through and BAM. Perfectly cut in half cheese.
Unroll your pastry puff, top it with cheese chunks.
Spoon some cranberry sauce on top of each cheese chunk.
Layer each with a few crushed walnuts (Optional)
Begin to roll your puff.
Once rolled, seal, chop into pieces and stack in a bread pan (You could use any pan really and be okay, I think).
Coat with some egg wash, sprinkle with Cinnamom/sugar.
Bake 425 for 20minutes.
So, fun story – trying to NAME THIS was a nightmare. My husband is in culinary school right now, so we debated the difference in “bakers confectionery” and “pastry” and “danish” and “turnover” for entirely too long — probably for longer than it actually took to make this tasty treat. haha. The conversations that take place in the McCain house are funny.
