Brie Cheese Pastry Wheel Recipe
Ingredients you will need:
- 1 wheel Brie cheese, partially scraped
- 1 package puff pastry (2 sheets), thawed
- 1 package 9″ pie crust
- 1 jar seedless raspberry preserves
- 1 egg mixed with 1 teaspoon water (egg wash)
Take 1 wheel Brie cheese and partially scrape off the outer layer.
Place 9″ pie crust on cutting board. Cut into 3 strips, each 1/8″ wide. Cut remainder of crust into 1/2″ strips. We did this by using the Rada Ham Slicer and running the blade of the Rada Pizza Cutter alongside it to make perfect dough strips.
Braid the 1/8″ strips.
Using the 1/2″ strips, make a lattice crust. The video embedded below towards the end of the article shows this in detail.
Cut or gently tear away the edges, forming the top of the pastry.
Place 2 sheets thawed puff pastry on baking sheet. Place Brie wheel in middle. Trace around Brie wheel with knife.
Cut puff pastry in a strip designed to make a wall around Brie wheel. Combine 1 egg and 1 teaspoon water to make egg wash. Coat sides of Brie wheel with egg wash and wrap pastry sough around Brie, forming a wall.
Add raspberry preservers to top of Brie wheel.
Wrap the braided dough around the bottom of the pastry-covered Brie wheel.
Add the lattice top to the Brie wheel, covering it. Run a thin strip of dough around the top to keep the top sealed.
Using remaining dough and egg wash, form a bow and place on top of pastry. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Serve with wheat crackers and enjoy!

Brie Cheese Pastry Video Transcript
Hi, I’m Chef Ted Smalley in the Rada Cutlery kitchen, and today I am going to be doing some pastry work with Brie cheese. It’s got a light wax on it, some people say don’t scrape it off, some say scrape it all off, so I split the difference and scraped some off. It does add a little bit more flavor.
What I have here is a regular 9” store-bought pie crust. I’m going to do a little bit of pastry work with it. Here I’m going to cut with both a meat cutting knife and a pizza cutter to give you a good, straight edge on this. I’m going to braid this, take one side and cross these.
Basically that’s how you do a really quick lattice, alternating back and fourth, start in the middle and work out, then go back to the middle and work in the other direction. Now what’ve I done is take some puff pastry and let it thaw. I let it thaw in plastic wrap so it doesn’t dry out.
What I’m going to do is set it here and take a wheel of Brie and set it a little off to the edge. Leave a little edge out there so I can put a wall around it. I’m going to get my paring knife and just trace around it. What I’m going to do is to put a wall on the outside with the puff pastry and I’m going to cover it with a seedless red raspberry jam. Hopefully some of that seeps down around it so we can make it real tight.
I’m going to take a brush and go around that edge a little bit. Not too much. Then I’m going to take the braid that I made from the pie crust and run it around. I’m going to add it there like so. Take the lattice work that we did. I’ve taken the lattice and put it on top of the raspberry jam, put the braid work around the base, and made a real thin strip around the top to hold the jam in a little bit because it has the tendency to pop out.
Now what I’m doing for the finishing touch is I’m cutting strips into little pieces here. A little bit of egg wash right here. Going to put it right up here on what will be the top. Cover it up a little bit, there. And there’s your bow.
Cook at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. So the Brie Pastry is coming out of the oven now and the best thing about using this baking stone is not only does it heat well but you can use it as the serving dish. You can put extra preservers up on there. Get out your party server and put some wheat crackers around it.
