Course: Appetizer, Dessert
Author: Basil and Bubbly
1Small Wheel Brieapprox 7 ounces
1Sheet Frozen Puff Pastryleft out on the counter to defrost for 45 minutes
1Eggbeaten ( for egg wash, optional )
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Slather the Nutella onto the wheel of brie ( Under no circumstances are you to remove the rind! Even if you don't like the rind normally, you will not taste it when baked and it is what holds the cheese together while baking!) Top the Nutella with half of the sliced almonds, pressing them into the spread.
Holding the brie over the puff pastry, flip the brie upside down ( Nutella-side down ) and place it on the puff pastry.
Fold all of the edges of the puff pastry up around the brie, covering the brie entirely.
Flip the puff pastry wrapped brie over onto a foil-lined jellyroll pan, so all of the folded-up seams are on the bottom. Brush the puff pastry with the beaten egg to make it pretty and glossy.
Bake at 400 for 25 minutes.
Make sure you use a pan with edges in case any oils leak from your brie while it is baking. Optional: Top with a drizzle of melted Nutella and 2 Tablespoons of Sliced Almonds.
