Baked Brie in Puff Pastry with Figs, Honey and Pistachios – Appetizer or Dessert

There is something inherently gratifying about a cheese course, one that combines soft brie cheese with sweet fruit and crunchy, toasted nuts. This elegant dish hides a mouthwatering mixture of flavors and makes a delicious appetizer or lunch, or wholly satisfying and truly unique dessert.

Ingredients

  • 1 cheese brie (I used ILE DE France 13.2 oz.)
  • 1 pack of puff pastry, thawed if frozen
  • 5-6 fresh figs, quartered
  • 2-3 Tbsp. honey
  • toasted pistachios for garnish
  • fresh sage for garnish
  • 1 egg for glaze

Instructions

1

Preheat the oven to 350F.

2

On a floured surface, roll out the pastry. Put the cheese into the center and bring the edges over to enclose the brie. Place on a baking sheet and gently glaze with beaten egg and bake for 25-30 minutes.

3

Spoon the figs and honey over the baked brie, sprinkle the pistachios and serve warm.

Notes

Fresh figs, either purple or white, should be perfectly ripe, but not mushy.

    I love brie ever since I tasted it and one of my good friend made this one Christmas years ago and I got addicted. This is so dangerous as I can eat the entire thing if I'm allowed. 😉 Your presentation is beautiful and I need to remember to make this from your site next time I do this!
