How to Make Baked Brie My Way

For some reason I bought 2 lb. brie. We are only two and no way can we eat it on our own. So I invited some friends for a cheesy snack.

I know that there is a guide on how to make a baked Brie. This is my version. I didn't have a recipe, I just used what I had.

I rolled out the pastry to go under the Brie. You can get puff pastry and brie in many sizes so adapt. This is a big piece of Brie and small pieces of pastry so I rolled two together.

I placed the pastry on a cookie sheet and the Brie on top. Turn your oven on at 375°F/200°C.

I diced the fruits and coarsely chopped the walnuts. Melted the butter on the frying pan and added the fruits and walnuts.

I have rosemary in my garden, but you can either use dry or omit it, but it did add a very nice flavour.

I added the agave sirup and rosemary to the frying pan and fried it until everything was glazed and the sirup had thickened. Use honey if you haven't got agave sirup.

I placed the fruits on top of the Brie after it had cooled down a bit.

I rolled out another piece of pastry to go on top of the Brie. I laid it so that the corners of the bottom piece and the top piece were not on top of each other.

Brushed both top and bottom with egg wash and folded the pastry around the Brie so there were no gaps.

It did not look pretty so I made some leafs to hide the ugly places where the pastry have been folded together.

Covering up the ugly folding job I've done. I brushed with egg wash and baked it in the hot oven for 35 minutes.

All done. Let it cool down for 15 minutes before cutting it open. Don't put it on a chopping board like I did, the melted Brie will run. Place it in a shallow dish.
