The challenge for Week 37 of Reddit’s 52 Weeks of Baking is European. I’ve always wanted to try baking Brie in a puff pastry with jam inside so that’s what I did. Not sure how authentic this recipe is but the Brie at least is undeniably European. I followed Rachel Ray’s recipe for the most part. I used cranberry pepper jelly and skipped the nuts. I baked for ten minutes longer than her instructions suggested but the puff pasty still didn’t brown as much as I would have liked.
This recipe is really easy, looks pretty, and tastes good but I think I prefer to skip the puff pastry part and just eat hot, melty Brie on crackers or apple slices with jelly.
