Baked Brie

Do you ever feel like a big question mark is hanging over your head? Like just when you think you have life figured out it becomes crystal clear that you don’t have it figured out at all? I feel like that, especially recently. Maybe these question marks are stemming from Jay and Kristin announcing they’re preggo (I mean seriously…WTH?!), but then again…maybe not.

After Italy I realized that life could be so different. I wish I had the resources to quit my job and, on a whim, move to Capri to live the lifestyle I fell instantly in love with. There I feel like I could just stand back and really appreciate everything. Gone would be the days stressing out about work and guys and the future.

Luckily I know that my current life question marks are nothing that some wine and baked cheese can’t alleviate. And this is seriously good cheese. In fact, this recipe makes 3 brie posts in the past month! I know without a doubt that this Baked Brie is the real deal. I know that it will be creamy and warm, that it will taste great atop fruits and carbs alike and that I will be able to prepare it in minutes. No question marks here. This I’ve got figured out. 😉

 Note: I’ve now tried this baked brie with raspberry preserves and apricot preserves. Even though I thought both were good, I liked the apricot preserves better because I think the level of sweetness was better. Just my opinion!

Here's what you'll need

Lay the Brie on top of the dough and top it with preserves

Fold the dough over top making sure it's fully covered. Then brush with the egg wash

Serve with toasts, crackers, apple slices or pear slices

An appetizer that's EASY and creamy delicious


8 ounce Brie round
8 ounce can crescent rolls
3 tablespoons fruit preserves (we’ve tried apricot and raspberry)
1 egg beaten, plus 1 tablespoon water
toasts or crackers
fruit, such as apples and pears

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Pop crescent roll tube open and leaving it in one piece, lay the dough onto a baking dish, forming a square shape. Place the Brie in the center and spread preserves on top. Seal the dough on top making sure all the seams are closed.

Beat an egg and 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl. Brush the egg wash over the dough. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown and puffed up.

Serve with sliced apples, sliced pears, crackers, or toasted bread.
