Triple Berry Baked Brie
Makes 12 appetizer servings
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
1/3 cup Smucker's® Orchard's Finest™ Northwest Triple Berry Preserves
1 (8-oz) round baby wheel brie cheese
1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts or pecans
1 large egg
1 Tbsp water

For serving:

Assorted crackers
Pear slices and/or apple slices


Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Preheat oven to 400ºF. On a lightly floured surface, unfold puff pastry and roll gently to seal any cracks in pastry.

Spoon preserves onto center of pastry; place cheese on top and then sprinkle evenly with nuts.

Fold pastry up and over to cover the brie. Trim excess pastry, reserving the scraps, and then press to seal seams around the brie.

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water; then brush seams with egg mixture. Place seam-side down on baking sheet.

Cut pastry scraps into decorative shapes and arrange on top; brush with egg mixture. Bake until golden brown, about 25 minutes.

Remove from oven and let stand for 20 minutes before cutting. Serve with crackers and sliced fruit.
