Brie in Pastry

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 ripe Brie cheese wheel, about 18 ounces
2 large shallots, finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1 tablespoon dry white wine
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1 sheet (9 ounces) frozen puff pastry
1 egg, beaten

Instructions

Cut off and discard the rind of the Brie. Combine the shallots, wine and pepper in a small bowl and press firmly over the top of the cheese. Roll out the pastry dough on a lightly floured surface to make a 10-inch square. Place the pastry over the cheese and fold it under the cheese to enclose it completely. Turn the cheese over and press the pastry seams together. Turn right side up and brush with the beaten egg. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Serves 6 to 8.
