Known for its smooth and fluffy texture and flavor, brie is a popular cheese made from cow or goat milk. It was originally made in northern France during the Middle Ages. It starts with raw or pasteurized milk mixed with rennet and enzymes so it can curdle and yeast culture to get it to mold. Once the curd forms, the cheese is cut, and the whey is drained off. After, it is brined while it rests and ripens.

Frequently asked questions

What is brie cheese?

This soft cheese is named after the area of France where it originated. It is a pale yellow or white cheese with a rind of white mold. It is very similar to camembert, which also comes from France. The longer this cheese sits out to mature, the richer and stronger it will be in both scent and taste. Also, brie cheeses taste different depending on where they are made like Cornish Brie from the UK, Kolb-Lena brie from the US, and Wicklow Ban Brie from Ireland.

How do I keep my baked brie warm?

Once you bake the brie, it will stay warm and soft for about 30 minutes when in puff pastry. Once it cools to room temperature, it begins to harden and will be more difficult to dip or spread. You could cover it in aluminum foil to help it stay warm longer, but the crust may get soggy. Simply reheat the cheese and it will be ready to eat again.

What is the difference between double cream and triple cream brie?

The common brie is a type of double cream cheese. That just means that the butterfat is between 60 and 75 percent. Any type of brie with a higher fat content than 75 percent is considered to be triple cream. This makes it softer and creamier with a richer flavor.

What are the nutrition facts in this recipe?

Each serving has 160 calories, 10 grams of fat, and 5 grams of saturated fat. You also get 28 mg of cholesterol, 191 mg of sodium, 14 carbs, and 11 grams of sugar. Each serving also contains 7 grams of protein, 65 mg of calcium, 1 gram of fiber, and 73 mg of potassium.

How to store leftovers:

  • Store: Wrap leftover cheese in plastic wrap and refrigerate right away in an airtight container to eat within a few days.

  • Freeze: Freezing brie is not recommended.

  • Reheat: Reheating brie is easy in the microwave at medium power for 30 to 60 seconds.

Recipe tips:

  • To keep the cheese from oozing out, do not remove the outer rind.

  • The cheese we used for this recipe was eight ounces.

  • Thaw the puff pastry sheet according to the package directions.

  • For a golden brown flaky crust, brush the top of the brie with egg wash before adding the sugar and syrup. To make egg wash, all you need is one egg and some water in a small bowl. Whisk and brush on top of the wrapped brie.

  • For best results, use a piece of parchment paper on your rimmed baking sheet.

  • Make sure your thawed sheet is large enough. If not, lay it on a lightly floured surface and roll it out with a rolling pin. If your pastry dough feels too sticky, lightly dust it with all-purpose flour.

  • If you cannot find puff pastry in your freezer section, just get some refrigerated pie dough or crescent roll pastry.
