Prep Time: 10minutes
Cook Time: 25minutes
Total Time: 35minutes
1wheelbrie cheese, around 7oz in size
1sheetpuff pastry, thawed
Preheat oven to 400F.
Place the puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.
Spoon the apricot jam on the middle of the puff pastry sheet. Spread it in a circle the size of the brie wheel. Sprinkle the chopped walnuts on the jam. Place the brie wheel on top.
In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water to make an egg wash.
Fold over the puff pastry and use a pastry brush to put some of the egg wash on the seams of the puff pastry to make sure it is all well sealed.
Turn the wrapped brie over, so the seam side of the puff pastry is facing down, and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. If desired, use some extra puff pastry to cut into shapes (leaves, mini berries, etc.) and place on the top of the wrapped brie wheel.
Brush all of the puff pastry with the egg wash.
Bake for about 30 minutes or until the puff pastry is browned. Let rest for 5 minutes before cutting into and serving.
