1 small wheel of Brie cheese
1 sheet of puff pastry
1 TBSP water
Seasoning for top
Open a package of brie cheese.
You can choose to cut the white part off or not. It is easier to eat without it, but it gives it a different taste with it. Up to you!
Remove thawed puff pastry sheet from package, and roll it out so there is enough to wrap the brie wheel in.
Preheat oven to 375° F
Place brie in the middle of rolled out pastry and gently gather each corner over the middle of the cheese, so that all sides of the cheese is covered.
Gently twist the top of the puff pastry and pinch a both below the twist to ensure it remains in place.
In a small bowl, mix egg and Tablespoon of water until blended. Brush top of pastry dough with egg and sprinkle your choice of seasoning over the top.
Place in oven on the bottom shelf (so the top doesn't brown too fast) and bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. If you cut the white off the outer part of the brie, bake for only an hour. If the top starts browning too fast, put foil over it until it is almost baked all the way through then remove it to complete the baking process.
Remove from oven and serve hot wedges. You can also serve it with crostini, and it goes great with cold grapes on the side, too!
