Mummy-Wrapped Brie

You can assemble our baked Brie appetizer in advance and bake it right before the party. —Marion Lowery, Medford, Oregon
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    10 servings


  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/4 cup apricot jam
  • 1 round (16 ounces) Brie cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Apple slices
  • 2 dried cranberries or raisins


  • Preheat oven to 400°. Unfold one sheet of puff pastry. On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry into a 14-in. square. Cut off corners to make a circle. Spread jam into a 4-1/2-in. circle in center of pastry. Place Brie on top; fold pastry over cheese, trimming as necessary, and pinch edges to seal. Beat egg and water; brush over pastry.
  • Place on an ungreased baking sheet, seam side down. Roll remaining pastry into a 14-in. square. Cut four 1-in. strips; cut strips in half crosswise. Wrap strips around Brie, trimming as necessary. Discard scraps. Bake 10 minutes; brush again with egg wash. Bake until golden brown, 10-15 minutes more. For eyes, cut two circles from apple slices; place on top of Brie. Top each circle with a dried cranberry. Serve warm with apple slices.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Brush apple slices with a bit of lemon juice to keep them bright white.
  • Use any jam or preserves in place of apricot. We like this with jalapeno or smoky bacon jam.
  • Secure pastry strips under the Brie so they stay put. Check midway through baking: If any have sprung free, tuck them back under, then finish baking.
  • To make this recipe year-round, skip the mummification and simply wrap cheese in one layer of puff pastry. Brush with egg wash and bake.

      Fun and festive! Doesn't involve a lot of time, and what's not to love about Brie! I would opt for a red jam to keep in the spirit of Halloween. I would also add some crackers or sliced baguette with the apple slices for serving.

      Loved the original recipe. for Hallowe'en, though, I would use red pepper jelly or a red chutney .
