If you’re looking for the easiest appetizer ever that will please a crowd, then look no further than this baked brie in puff pastry with fig jam.
I’ve had different versions of baked brie over the years and they never disappoint. You can use a variety of frozen doughs to wrap it in, whether it’s puff pastry, phyllo dough or pie crust. Oh and can use different brie cheeses as well, depending on if you like something mild or something that’s more buttery. You really can’t go wrong!
But what really can alter the tastes is you can use whatever type of jam you’d like. I usually go with fig or apricot, but any jam would work great. You could even add some sliced almonds or crushed walnuts inside. The combinations really are endless. As I said the best thing about this baked brie, is it uses almost no ingredients and is prepped in a minute. From there, you just let the oven to the work!
I’ve made this baked brie for countless parties and it’s always been a hit. And your guests won’t even realize it took you only 5 minutes to prep before throwing in the oven. Well if they’ve made it themselves, they might but either way, trust me you won’t regret giving it a try. Hope you enjoy!

Can I Use Something Other than Puff Pastry?
Yes you can also use phyllo dough, pie crust or crescent roll dough. Phyllo dough and crescent roll dough is a little lighter and gets crispier as they’re much thinner than puff pastry. Pie crust is pretty similar to puff pastry. but you can’t go wrong with any of them. Baking times will just vary depending on what you use.
