Trey’s Brie Pastry

 I am back from Mobile! Here is a quick weekend recap and recipe!

When I arrived in Mobile Trey had Mellow Mushroom waiting on me for dinner. We had a Caesar salad, bruschetta and a Mediterranean pizza. For dessert he got a slice of German chocolate pie and a red velvet cupcake from Fresh Market. Everything was wonderful. I didn’t even think about taking pictures.

Friday we got up and went to Fresh Market and bought sushi, salad and the stuff to make his Brie Pastry. If you haven’t notice already I love Fresh Market. Anytime I am in Mobile we go at least once if not more during my stay.

Fresh Market Sushi

When Trey and I were in the pre-dating phase (not sure what to call the time when you aren’t sure what you are but you know you like each other kind of thing) he made this pastry appetizer. I was completely impressed. It taste so good! His cooking is one of the many reasons why I date him.

If you need something quick but impressive to make for an appetizer try this.

Trey’s Brie Pastry
Makes enough for 4-6

  • 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
  • 8 oz round Brie block
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup craisins (we used a berry mix)
  • water crackers
  • grapes
  • cooking spray
  • foil
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cover baking dish with foil. Spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. Spread out pastry sheet on counter (make sure counter is clean!)
  4. Cut brie in half like a hamburger bun.
  5. Place one half of the brie in the center of the pastry.
  6. Cover the cheese with the almonds then add the craisins. Top with the other half of the Brie.
  7. Take corners of pastry and fold on top of the Brie. Make sure the pastry completely seals over the cheese. You do not want any holes
  8. Place in baking dish folded corners side down.
  9. Bake for approximately 1 hour. Until pastry is golden brown you know its good when the cheese starts bubbling out the bottom.
  10. Serve on crackers with grapes.

Today after work I went to Walmart and bought every type of cleaning item I will ever need! Or at least I hope so. I also got some odds and ends.

Now I need to finish packing everything! 1 more day!
