Baked Stuffed Brie with Cranberries & Walnuts

Rating: 5 stars

So like to make it better, I substituted the brie with brie, the walnuts with walnuts, and used cranberries for the cranberries. I did stick with the puff pastry for the puff pastry. It was most excellent. Next time I think I'll use brie instead cause my family loves brie. And the string thing was epic brilliance. Great idea and worked superbly. Definitely a keeper idea.

Crowd pleaser! I did not do the string technique. I put the brie wheel in the freezer for about 20 minutes and was able to cut it in half with a knife with no problems.

I made for a dinner party and I was hit! I put it together and put in the freezer for a while., lowered the temp to 400 and added 5-10 min. I also used a cookie cutter to make a Christmas tree for the top. Very pleased with how it turned out.

What a beautiful gem to star in my bunco buffet! I used an 8 oz wheel (small enough to just set it on its edge and cut with a large knife) I used sliced almonds (not slivered) to make it less chewy and a bit more elegant and I used plenty of egg wash...it browned beautifully! I cut off the corners of the pastry prior to wrapping and used them to make flowers and leaves. I had 8 folks partaking and the brie was the one thing on the buffet that disappeared. My gf is coming over Monday to learn how to make it. Thank you Chef John...this will be a regular for my parties!

Was a big hit at our family's thanksgiving gathering. Used dried cranberries and honey as filling, and excluded nuts since many of my nephews aren't big on gourmet nuts. Had considered using cashews but decided to forego based on input from my 14 year old son. Everyone loved the combo and the pastry shell. We served with water crackers. Planning to make this again and definitely recommend for parties and family gatherings.

I also did not bother with the string bit to slice the Brie in half. 20 minutes in the freezer & it was easy to cut. I also didn't follow the instructions for the nuts and cranberries. I put the nuts on the Brie cranberries on top of the nuts then placed the other half of the Brie on top of that. No worries about flipping the thing and having some of it fall out. Baked as per instructions and it was very good. While it's best eaten when it's warm and runny it cools fairly quickly.

Pretty good. It was very pretty. However we always cook a recipe the first time exactly as written. This one did not seem hot enough inside when done outside. So it needs a little modification on cooking time.

Yummy! Will absolutely make this again. Everyone at the party raved about it. Especially loved the video which showed how to make the decorative grapes on the vine w/ the puff pastry and the trick in scoring the cheese and cutting with dental floss. Not crazy about walnuts so substituted pecans and added a pinch of salt and 1 TBSP of brown sugar mixed into the pecans. Also used Martha's egg wash egg yolk & 2 TBSP heavy creme. Served with sliced apples and persimmons.
