Brie En Croute

Brie En Croute


  • 3 ounces pkg cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 4-1/2 oz package Brie cheese
  • 1/2 tsp sesame seeds


In a medium bowl, cut cream cheese & butter into flour with a pastry blender until particles resemble small peas. Shape into a ball. Wrap in foil or plastic wrap; refrigerate at least 1 hour. Divide dough into 2 pieces. On a lightly floured surface roll out each piece about 1/8" thick. Cut each into a 6" circle, reserving excess dough for trim. Place one circle of dough on an ungreased baking sheet. Place whole Brie cheese in center of dough; top with other circle. Pinch pastry edges together to seal. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll out excess dough. Cut 1 decorative design with a cookie cutter & about 10 small designs with hors d'oeuvre cutters. Place large cut-out on top of croute & small cut-outs around the sides. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand several minutes before cutting into small wedges. Serve warm. Makes 12 appetizer servings. Note: This also works well with Camembert.
