This easy, delicious recipe for Strawberry Jalapeno Baked Brie is sure to impress any crowd!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry
  • 1 round of Brie cheese
  • 1/2 cup Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Jalapeno Fruit Spread
  • 1 egg, whisked with a fork
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • Strawberries, apples, crusty bread for serving with (not all pictured)

Instructions

  1. Start by setting out a sheet of puff pastry and letting it come to room temp (follow the package directions).   Use a small rolling pin to roll it out to a square about 12″ x 12″ on parchment paper.
  2. This is optional, but I trimmed the rind off of the Brie cheese.  I’ve read arguments for leaving it and taking it off, but I tried it both ways and we definitely liked it better without the rind.
  3. Place the cheese in the center of the puff pastry, top with the Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Jalapeno Fruit Spread, then begin wrapping the puff pastry around the cheese.  I don’t have a lot of practice with this but I learned the first time that you don’t want the puff pastry to be piled up thick in multiple layers… it will not bake all the way through.
  4. To avoid that scenario, wrap it up tight, using the egg wash to seal all the seams  – making sure to trim off excess so that it’s not super thick on top.  I used some of the scrap pastry to add some “leaves” to the top to make it pretty 🙂 then brushed the entire outside surface with the egg wash again.
  5. Bake at 350°F for 25-35 minutes on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Bake until deep golden brown.  I started at 25 minutes but the pastry was still not done and the cheese not completely melted so for me, it was better at 35 minutes.
  6. Drizzle with honey, then let it rest for 10-15 minutes before serving.  My favorite way to eat it was on slices of toasted baguette.  But me and the kids also enjoyed it on sliced green apples.
