Brie Pumpkin in Puff Pastry



45 min

The “Brie Pumpkin” - since the first time I laid my eyes on one of these I knew I HAD TO make one and it would be a glorious moment. Oh It was. Went ahead and made mine with a HUGE Brie wheel but tbh next time I will use one that melts a little better. This baked brie en croute features one of my favorite local artisan jelly makers @mthopefarms Spiced Marionberry which is great for this time of year and I added pecans and my favorite vanilla cinnamon honey for a sweet touch. This Brie Pumpkin with Puff Pastry makes for an elegant and tasty addition to any fall or holiday celebration. Enjoy the rich flavors and creative presentation!

Picture for Brie Pumpkin in Puff Pastry

8 servings





1 sheet pepperidge farms puff pastry

1 ½ lb brie wheel

2 tbsp Naturacentric Vanilla Cinnamon honey

¼ cup Mt. Hope Farms Spiced Marionberry fruit spread

1 egg white

Fresh sage leaves for leaves

1 thick pretzel or cracker for stem

Water crackers

Dried sweetened oranges


Step 1

Remove the Pepperidge Farms puff pastry from the freezer and let it thaw according to the package instructions

Step 2

Preheat your oven to the temperature specified on the puff pastry package (usually around 400°F or 200°C).

Step 3

Lay the thawed puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Place the fruit spread and brie right in the center.

Step 4

Gently fold the puff pastry over the brie, completely enveloping it. Trim any excess pastry if necessary.

Step 5

Press the edges of the pastry together to seal the brie inside.

Step 6

Cut 4 pieces of kitchen twine and wrap / tie them around the brie/puff pastry to create the pumpkin ridge detail. You will leave these on during baking.

Step 7

Brush with Egg White:

Step 8

In a small bowl, beat the egg white until slightly frothy.

Step 9

Brush the egg white over the entire surface of the wrapped brie. This will give the puff pastry a golden-brown finish when baked.

Step 10

Bake: Place the wrapped brie on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Step 11

Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the puff pastry is golden brown and puffed up.

Step 12

While the brie is baking, gently wash and pat dry the fresh sage leaves.

Step 13

After removing the brie from the oven, arrange the sage leaves around the stem area to resemble pumpkin leaves.

Step 14

Place a pretzel or cracker upright on the top of the wrapped brie to resemble a stem.

Step 15

Serve: Carefully transfer the baked brie pumpkin to a serving platter. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before serving to ensure no one is scalded.

Step 16

Arrange water crackers and dried sweetened oranges around the pumpkin for a festive and flavorful presentation.

Step 17

Enjoy: Serve the Brie Pumpkin with Puff Pastry as a delightful appetizer or centerpiece at your gathering. Slice into the gooey, honey-kissed brie and enjoy with the crackers and dried oranges.
