  • 6 sheets puff pastry, thawed
  • 230 g (8 oz.) brie
  • 4 tbsp fig jam
  • 1 medium egg
  • 6 dried figs, chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 cup pistachios, chopped (optional)
  • 1 tbsp butter, for greasing


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Grease a muffin tin with the butter.

  2. Roll out each sheet of puff pastry to make them thinner. Divide each sheet in half, so that you'll have 12 squares in total (the puff pastry we have here are long sheets—whatever you can get, make sure you have 12 squares).

  3. Place the squares in the prepared muffin tin. Divide the brie into 12 similar pieces (you can add more or less, depending on how much cheese you want for each). 

  4. Put a teaspoon of fig jam on top of the brie.

  5. Optionally, add chopped dried figs and pistachios to each for extra crunch and flavor.

  6. Close the brie bites by folding each corner on top of each other. 

  7. Make an egg wash by mixing 1 egg with 1 tablespoon of water. Brush the puff pastry with the egg wash.

  8. Place in the oven and bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove and devour.

    Bon appetit!
