Baked Brie in Puff Pastry – Easy Thanksgiving Appetizer!

Baked Brie in Puff Pastry Finished Product

Who ever thought that making baked brie in puffed pastry would be this easy?

There are no less than 8 people at each holiday event, so I need to find appetizer recipes that are easy to make and of course, delicious!

Baked Brie in Puff Pastry

Every dinner party we have includes an appetizer with cheese.  I love to make a charcuterie but it’s nice to switch it up a bit every once in a while!

My sister made this for the first time a few years back and I have been following suit ever since.  What I especially like about this baked brie recipe is that you can mix and match some of the ingredients to fit your taste buds.  Swap out the sliced almonds for walnuts, the dried cranberries for dried blueberries, etc.  

You can serve the baked brie with:

  • Wheat thins
  • Carr’s Water Crackers
  • Pita chips
  • Baby carrots
This is the perfect appetizer for Thanksgiving dinner!


Baked Brie in Puff Pastry

  • One 12 ounce wheel of brie cheese
  • One puff pastry (defrosted)
  • Honey
  • Butter, melted
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup dried cranberries


Place the wheel of Brie in the middle of your defrosted, rolled out puff pastry.
