I've been wanting to try baked brie for a while now. I think the first time I really saw it was on an episode of Down Home with the Neelys. :) They baked brie on a grill and I thought that was just genius. I am a HUGE brie fan. So I've been stoked to try it ever since.This is also a super easy appetizer idea in case you are having guests over anytime soon. You only need two ingredients: puff pastry and brie. Simply wrap the brie in puff pastry (I cut the excess dough with an acorn cookie cutter to add a little decoration to the top) place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 375°F for 18-22 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve hot with sliced apples, grapes, crackers or bread. You could also serve this along with jams or honey. Enjoy! xo. Emma
P.S. Please pretend you don't see that giant crumb on my hand... since I (apparently) didn't. #ewww
A note about the rind: I did not cut the rind off before baking. It is perfectly edible and you actually don't notice it much after your brie is baked. When I'm eating brie unbaked I sometimes cut off the rind, simply because I don't enjoy it. So, either way really. It's totally up to you.
