There are times that we are served something in a restaurant or friend’s house and it looks tough to make, but once you do it, you have to laugh at its simplicity. This is one of those dishes.
This is a 15oz piece of brie, right out of the package, trust us, don’t peel off the rind. Place it on a pre-made pie crust and top with 3 TBL jam. We used strawberry.
Fold over the crust, you may need to cut a bit to fit the very center of the top, the sides should have enough overlap to do this. Just press a bit to seal it shut. Pour 1/4 cup of maple syrup on top, then sprinkle with a few TBL brown sugar.
Put into a 350F oven and bake until it’s golden brown. Ovens vary quite a bit, in ours it took about 50 minutes. Serve with your favorite crackers or French Bread. Some people like to served sliced apples with this as well. Also, a search for Baked Brie recipes showed some that used puff pastry, a bit lighter than this, or crescent rolls. Sorry, that didn’t appeal to us.
Have you ever made baked brie? How does your recipe differ? What do you serve it with? We liked this dish as it took minutes to prep, in the time it took to heat the oven, this was ready to go in. Enjoy!
