The best way to serve this dish is warm, with the puff pastry crust intact. Serve it with crackers or sliced baguette for dipping. You can also top it with fruit, jam, or honey for extra flavor.
Can You Eat the Brie Rind?
The white rind on brie cheese is edible. In fact, many people enjoy eating it because it has a slightly crunchy texture and a nutty flavor. However, if you don’t like the taste of the rind, you can simply remove it before serving.
Is baked brie healthy?
Baked brie is actually a fairly healthy dish. It’s made with cheese, which is a good source of protein and calcium. Since this one is covered in puff pastry and apple pie filling, it does have some sugar and carbs. However, you can easily make it healthier by using a sugar-free apple pie filling and whole wheat pastry dough.

This will depend on how hot your oven is, but you should cook brie for around 20 minutes. This will ensure that the cheese is melted and gooey. You can also put it in for longer if you want the pastry to be extra crispy.

How do you eat Baked Brie?
Baked brie is an appetizer that has many great options to serve with it.
Crackers. My favorite way to enjoy it is with crackers and I love spreading warm baked brie with jam on a cracker.
Baguette slices. Thinly sliced baguette is also a great way to enjoy warm gooey baked brie cheese.
Crusty bread. I like a baguette but any crusty bread for spreading or dipping the melted cheese on top will work.
What do you Serve with Baked Brie?
When serving baked brie I like to make it a platter of deliciousness and include other foods to complement it. While dipping these items in the cheese is not an option they pair well with the flavors.
- sliced apples
- sliced pears
Variations and tips
Bake in pie pan. If you are serving for a party I find it easiest to bake in a pie plate because it will all stay in the dish instead of spreading when people eat it.
Add nuts. Baked Brie can be changed up by adding nuts on top of the jam before wrapping it up. The best nuts to use are pecans and walnuts.
Homemade Puff Pastry. You can make homemade puff pastry if you want to, however I just use the store bought frozen puff pastry. Before making baked brie be sure to let the puff pastry sheet thaw completely.
Roll out the puff pastry with a rolling pin. Some puff pastry sheets I am finding in the store are smaller then they used to be, if your puff pastry sheet is to small use a rolling pin and roll it out or connect 2 pieces of puff pastry sheets so it is big enough.
Homemade apple pie filling. To make things easier I normally used canned apple pie filling but you can also use homemade apple pie filling.
Add apple slices. While I like using apple pie filling and you will want to use apple pie filling for this recipe you can add slices of fresh apples too. When doing so I like to add slices of granny smith apples into the apple mixture that comes from the can. You can also use gala apples.
How long do you cook baked brie?
Baked brie in puff pastry is baked for 20-35 minutes. The baking time will depend on your oven, so start checking it at the 20 minute mark.
How to Store Leftover baked Brie
To store leftover brie if you have leftovers, wrap tightly in plastic wrap or in an airtight container. It will keep in the fridge for 3-4 days.
How to reheat Baked Brie from the Fridge
Place baked brie on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is reheated. You can wrap it in aluminum foil before heating if you would like to. You will know it is done when the cheese is melted again.
Can you Freeze Baked Brie?
You can totally freeze it and it is easy to do. Freezing it is a great way to prep ahead when you are making appetizers for a party. Just complete all the steps of adding the jam, wrapping it in puff pastry, and then wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and freeze.
When you are ready to bake it just unwrap it from the plastic wrap, brush it with the melted butter and then bake it directly while still frozen. You will need to bake it a few extra minutes than if you were doing it unfrozen.
