  • 1. Prep

    Preheat oven to 375˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

  • 2. Cut and unfold

    Cut the brie into 2 ½” long pieces. Unfold each piece of thawed puff pastry and cut each into 4 equal squares.

  • 3. Add pear

    Place one piece of brie diagonally onto 4 of the pastry squares, then top each with a halved pear.

  • 4. Create slits

    Using a very sharp knife, create slits in the other 4 pastry squares. We alternated between cutting 1 row of 4 longer slits, then a row of 5-6 shorter ones.

  • 5. Form

    Carefully lift the cut pastry and gently pull the slits apart to create separation. Lay each piece overtop of the pears and crimp with a fork. Cut off any excess dough.

  • 6. Freeze

    Freeze for 10 minutes, then brush with beaten egg white and bake for about 40 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through. These pastries are best served slightly warm!
