Christmas Wreath


  • 1 sheet puff pastry, homemade preferred
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 8 ounces brie cheese, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pistachios
  • 2 tablespoons mixed dried fruits (cranberries, raisins, plumbs, etc)
  • 3 tablespoons cranberry jam

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Roll out the puff pastry sheet to a 1/8-inch thick circle, or as close as possible.  For the puff pastry dough, see a step-by-step guide here.

Step 2: Place a small bowl in the center and press gently so the edges make an imprint.

Step 3: Use a sharp knife and cut through the smaller imprint circle, creating 8 triangles.

Step 4: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 5: Spread cranberry jam over the outer ring of the puff pastry circle.

Step 6: Place brie cheese over the spread jam.  Sprinkle over with pistachios and dried fruits.

Step 7: Take one of the eight triangles and fold over the cheese and nuts, and press to seal with the outer edge of the puff pastry.  Repeat with remaining triangles.

Step 8: Brush the wreath with egg and bake for 20 minutes.

Step 9: Slice and serve at room temperature.
