Prosciutto Wrapped Baked Brie in Pastry, the holiday appetizer we all want the most this holiday season. It’s quick, easy, and incredibly delicious. Store-bought puff pastry wrapped around a wheel of creamy brie cheese that’s topped with honey, then wrapped in prosciutto. It’s then baked until deeply golden on the outside and melty inside. A deliciously popular appetizer that’s perfect for holiday entertaining and always a crowd favorite!

To be honest, I feel like this recipe really just speaks for itself. Is there anything better than baked Brie over the holidays? I love a wheel of baked brie, especially one wrapped in flaky pastry (how could you not?).

Brie around the holidays has been a tradition for my family for as long as I can remember. It’s an appetizer my Nonnie would make every single Christmas for her yearly Christmas party. She’d actually do multiple wheels since oftentimes her parties had as many as 30 family members. They were big, but our family is big!

Anyway, she was a pro at baked brie, I would say it was one of her signature appetizers. Ever since then I too serve some type of Brie for Christmas. It’s always been a forite of my mom’s as well.

This brie is special, as all Christmas recipes should be. And it might just be my favorite baked brie yet. It’s the prosciutto that makes all the difference.

The crispy, salty prosciutto with honey and melty brie, surrounded by pastry. Heavenly.

Details

Nonnie knew that appetizers needed to be simple, so store-bought puff pastry was a must.

Unwrap the brie, then sit it on top of the pastry. Take a pairing knife and cut into the brie making a cross-hatch pattern. From here, I top the brie with a couple tablespoons of fig preserves (I get mine at Whole Foods) and honey. Then thyme and lots of black pepper.

If you don’t have any fig preserves, that’s totally fine, just use honey. I LOVE the preserves with the cheese and prosciutto, but using all honey it’s such a wonderfully savory, sweet, and salty combination. So really, either works great.

Now take thin slices of prosciutto and drape them over the brie, tucking the ends of the prosciutto underneath the Brie so it’s “wrapped”.

Then wrap the brie up in the pastry, brush the pastry with a beaten egg, and add a sprinkle of coarse sugar. This step isn’t needed, but it makes the pastry really sparkle. It’s fun for the holidays and adds a nice deliciousness too.

Then just throw the brie in the oven, and done.

When the brie comes out of the oven, serve it immediately along with your favorite crackers. It’s hard to describe just how good this really is. The prosciutto really adds a savory, saltiness that pairs so well with the rich brie. And the honey just sweetens the deal.

    This is ridiculously delicious!!! The flavors all go so perfectly together. I made it for my family as a special New Year’s appetizer, and it was such a hit. I omitted the thyme, and it was still perfection

      Thanks for giving this recipe a try and sharing your feedback, sorry to hear this was not enjoyed. Please let me know if there is something specific that I can help with! xT

    1. Hey Julie,
      You could use less than a whole wheel, but I would also use less prosciutto and puff pastry so it’s not overwhelming the brie. I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xx

    I made this for a family get together and it was a huge hit with everyone raving about how delicious it was!
    I served it with sliced baguettes and had extra fig jam to go with it because it was so good with extra jam!
    Super quick and easy to make too.

    Made this ChristmasDay – Total hit! Yummy flavor combination and so easy to prepare.
    Family members weren’t quite sure how to approach it, and my son cut into it with a knife – not so appetizing. When I make it again, I’ll break it apart prior serving.

    1. Hey Cindy,
      Awesome!! I love to hear that this recipe turned out well for you and appreciate you giving it a try! xT

    Made a version of this for Christmas Eve. I placed the brie circle in the puff pastry with honey and sprinkled with cooked chopped pancetta. Finished it as the recipe described. It was a huge hit! Will definitely make again and will make sure I have all the ingredients. Thank you!

    This was amazing. My daughter and I ate so much we were full for Christmas dinner! Loved the sweet/savory. And for those who don’t love the bitey taste of Brie, this recipe mellows that out. Will definitely make again.

    1. Hey Patti,
      Awesome!! I love to hear that this recipe turned out well for you and appreciate you giving it a try! xT

  8. This looks amazing. I’m a mom with kids trying to make ahead for some guests coming. Is this something I can prep and freeze, then defrost and cook on the day?
    If not, how much in advance would you think I could make this?

    1. Hey Joy,
      Sure, I don’t see why not, you could also assemble the day before and keep in the fridge until you are ready to bake. I hope this recipe turns out well for you, please let me know if you give it a try! xT

    Merry Christmas Tieghan!
    I made this recipe for Christmas Eve, and it was a big, big hit! Everyone loved it! I may have added just a little bit more honey, but it was delicious! Are used Pillsberry crescent roll and brushed it with the egg and turbinado sugar instead of the white, but it was fine. Thank you, thank you! Your recipes are always spot on.
