Jamie's Baked Brie

My ex-wife Jamie's been making this savory Brie en croute since way back before we were married. I think she must have gotten the idea from a magazine, but I've never seen the recipe... I just wing it. It can be made with either puff pastry sheets (quick and easy) or phyllo sheets (more work, flakier shell). Serve with fancy table crackers or digestive biscuits.

Yield:
1 baked brie

Ingredients

  • 1 shallot, minced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper

  • 1 tablespoon dry vermouth

  • 1 (8 ounce) round Brie cheese

  • 3 sheets phyllo dough

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Stir the shallot, garlic, white pepper, and vermouth together in a small bowl; set aside. Cut the rind off the top of the brie cheese, leaving a 1/4-inch lip around the edge. Place the brie cheese onto a baking sheet, and spoon the shallot mixture over top. Fold the phyllo sheets in half to make square pieces. Wrap the brie with the phyllo squares, tucking the edges underneath of the brie cheese. Trim the corners if needed to avoid tucking too much pastry underneath. You want complete enclosure, but without too much overlap. Brush the top with melted butter to make the pastry brown in the oven.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the phyllo has turned golden brown and the brie cheese is very soft, about 20 minutes. Serve warm.

Cook's Note:

If you use phyllo, brush each layer with melted butter. This results in a crispier, fluffier crust, but takes a lot of work.
