Baked Brie with Honey Garlic Sauce

Baked Brie with Honey Garlic SauceThis is my favorite way to eat brie and possibly my favorite appetizer. Every time I serve it there are compliments, even from those who may not have ever tried this cheese before.

1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 19.5-ounce wheel of brie
1 beaten egg for coating
½ cup butter
6 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoon minced garlic
4 tablespoon chopped walnuts
2 tablespoon fresh parsley
thinly sliced baguettes or crackers

Baked Brie with Honey Garlic SauceWrap the thawed puff pastry sheet around the wheel of brie, making sure it is completely sealed by smoothing the seams with your fingers. Save some of the extra pieces for decorative cutouts on the top, maybe a nice leave motif. Brush the pastry-covered brie with the beaten egg and bake at 400 degrees for 18 minutes or until nicely browned.Baked Brie with Honey Garlic Sauce

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saucepan and add the minced garlic and honey. Let it simmer gently for a minute or two then pour it onto a shallow dish. Sprinkle the sauce with chopped walnuts and freshly chopped parsley then place the browned, baked brie on top of the sauce. Serve the brie spread over thinly sliced baguettes.

Hi Michelle,
I've just found your blog and have been enjoying looking at several of your wonderful recipes...I've made something like this before, a recipe from Martha Stewart, but I'm intrigued by the honey garlic sauce. For clarification, you say two, 19.5 wheel of brie....(1) do you stack them on top of each other and then cover with the pastry or what? (2) 19.5 what, ounces, inches? I currently live in Hong Kong and am anxious to serve this appetizer to our friends. Thanks and keep those recipes coming!

I'm so sorry I apologize for the confusion, my only defense is that it was one of the first recipes I posted and has a few errors in it.

I have been going back through my recipe archives, cleaning up old posts and posting pictures with each but I was saving that one for closer to the holiday season when I make the brie each year.

I have republished it with the correction. Only ONE wheel of
19.5-ounce brie is needed. You'll just need a small wheel of it,
about five or six inches in diameter (not sure of the metric
conversion). It really is a fabulous recipe, one that has been passed around from friend to friend after they try it.
