1 person made this
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 or 2 tablespoons plain flour, for dusting
1 (225g) round brie, sliced in half horizontally
40g flaked almonds
2 tablespoons butter, or more as needed
2 tablespoons honey, or more to taste
1 egg white, beaten
Method Prep:15min › Cook:45min › Ready in:1hr
Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
Dust a silicon mat or clean work surface with flour. Roll out the puff pastry into a 3mm sheet with a rolling pin.
Place 1/2 of the brie on the puff pastry, rind side-down. Trim off the corners of the pastry with a knife.
Dab the top of the brie with 2 tablespoons almonds and 1 tablespoon butter. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon honey. Cover with the other half of brie, rind side-up. Top with the remaining almonds, butter and honey.
Wrap the puff pastry around the wheel of brie, sealing the seams by pinching them together. Brush with egg white. Place brie en croute on a baking tray.
Bake in the preheated oven until pastry is golden brown, 45 to 50 minutes.
Dust the rolling pin lightly with flour if the pastry sticks to it.
