This Vegetarian Brie & Pear Puff Pastry recipe is conveniently easy. Just remember to take it out your puff pastry out of the freezer to thaw overnight. This is a delicious savory and sweet recipe that makes a great appetizer.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 package frozen puff pastry
  • 1 medium pear, ripe but firm, cut into thin slices
  • 2 oz. Brie cheese, cut into thin slices with rind removed
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme, stems removed
  • 2 t. ground cinnamon
  • 1 t. nutmeg
  • 2 T. maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 T. water

Instructions

1

Thaw puff pastry in refrigerator for 2-3 hours or overnight.

2

Position rack in the middle position and preheat oven to 375 degrees.

3

Open thawed puff pastry and carefully unfold, being careful not to crack it. Place puff pastry on a lightly floured surface. Gently roll pastry with a floured rolling pin into a large rectangle. Cut in half with a sharp knife and carefully wrap one portion in plastic before returning to the refrigerator. (Use the remaining portion within a day for another recipe or to double this one).

4

Place the remaining rectangle on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. To create a picture frame effect, cut around the perimeter of the sheet with a sharp knife about 1/2” from the outside edge, but do not cut all the way through.

5

Dock the pastry inside the cut you just made with a fork just like you would a pie crust. Add the Brie in a single layer on top of the interior portion. Top with pear slices, then sprinkle with thyme leaves, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Brush top with maple syrup to evenly coat.

6

Create an egg wash by whisking one tablespoon of water with one egg yolk. Brush mixture over the outside exposed portion of the puff pastry before placing in oven.

7

Bake for approximately 15- 18 minutes, or until the pastry “picture frame” puffs up and turns golden brown.

8

Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before serving.
