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.

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.

I suggest doing as my Nonnie would do and make a few rounds for everyone to enjoy. It will be the most popular app on the table!

    Bright this to a NYE gathering last night. It was the hit of the table of appies and the plate was literally licked clean lol. Will definitely be adding it to my recipe book.

  2. Just made this and taking it to a party tonight and it looks great. Will it still be ok if it cools, or is it best right out of the oven??? I could ask hostess to cook it there..

    Thank you if you are able to respond 🙂

    All the stars for this one! It is easy, looks beautiful and is delicious. I brought it to a holiday party and it was a HUGE hit. Will definitely add to my appetizer rotation!

  4. Could you use phyllo dough in place of the puff pastry? My grocery store substituted phyllo in my pick up lol

    I can’t wait to make. What is in the jar that you are serving with it in your picture of the finished product? Thank you!

  6. Can you make this in advance then just reheat it? I want to make it to take to a party but it’s Thanksgiving and I’m worried about hogging 425 degree oven space at someone else’s house.

  7. This might be a silly question, but how do you serve it? Do you cut it like a pie? First timer over here 🙈
    It looks soo delicious and I’ll be trying this along with several other recipes of yours for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year!

    1. Hi Malia,
      I just serve with a cheese knife and guests can cut off pieces as they like. I hope you love this recipe! xx

      1. Hi Denise,
        You will want to use an 8-12 ounce wheel of brie. Please let me know if you have any other questions! Happy Thanksgiving! xT

    I had to make a few adjustments because of what I had on hand. My brie was a wedge instead of a round and I substituted regular ready made pie pastry for the puff pastry. I cubed the brie and layered it with the prosciutto, preserves and honey in the center of the pastry leaving about an inch uncovered all the way round. I topped it with the thyme and pepper then folded the edges of pastry up to form a Galette instead, and finished it as directed with the beaten egg and coarse sugar. I baked it at 375F instead of 425F for 20-21 minutes. It got top marks in my hubby’s opinion!

    1. Hey Sarah,
      Love to hear that this recipe turned out well for you, thanks a lot for trying it and your feedback! xT

    Absolutely fantastic! I made this for an appetizer for a small get-together and everyone raved about it. . . as it was quickly demolished (LOL)! I scored major points with my hubs and our guests. It was seriously so delicious! Everyone got a copy of the recipe, as I anticipated in advance. After all, it’s a HBH recipe!

  10. Hi…looking at the pictures, it looks like you leave the rind on. Can it be taken off since it is wrapped anyway….not a fan of the rind. Thank you
