Puff Pastry Wrapped Brie & Pumpkin Butter
1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
1 baby brie wedge*
3-4 Tablespoons pumpkin butter**
splash of water
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lay the puff pastry sheet out on a cutting board then smooth creases. Unwrap brie then set aside.
- Spread pumpkin butter in the shape of the brie wedge on the puff pastry then lay the cheese wedge on top. Wrap puff pastry around the cheese, pinching tightly to seal where the pastry overlaps (you may want to trim a little of the pastry as you are wrapping.) Use a strip from the scraps to seal the seam on the pastry.
- Spray a foil-lined baking sheet with non-stick spray then place cheese, seam side down, on the baking sheet. Whisk egg with a splash of water then brush the top of puff pastry with a thin layer. Bake puff pastry for 17-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow cheese to cool and re-set for 20 minutes before cutting into it.
- Serve with crackers and fruit!
