Ingredients

  • Puff Pastry
  • Trader Joe's Mini Brie Bites, or something similar
  • Fruit spread of your choice (I used Dalmatia Dried Fig Spread)
  • Egg wash - 1 large egg yolk, beaten with a pinch of salt and splash of water

Instructions

  • Roll out a thin square of puff pastry. The thinner the dough, the prettier the final result will be.
  • Place a mini brie bite in the center and top with a small dollop of fruit spread (1/2 - 1 teaspoon).
  • Wrap the puff pastry tightly around the brie, pinching the ends together and smoothing them out a bit. Cut away excess dough if necessary. This will be the bottom so it doesn't have to be very pretty, but you want to seal any holes. Place the dough facing pretty side up on a sheet tray.
  • Repeat this process until you've made all the bites. (***see note)
  • Use a small knife to poke 3-4 decorative holes in the top, then brush the top and sides with egg wash.
  • Bake at 430 degrees F for 20 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

*** If you're planning to take these to a party, stop here. Wrap the bites individually in plastic wrap and refrigerate them. Transport the uncooked brie bites and egg wash in a cooler. Then follow the rest of the recipe 20 minutes before serving.
