"This baked brie puff pastry is rich, creamy, and dessert-like. It always disappears. I'm always asked for the recipe. Raspberry preserves goes great in this as well. Bringing in 2012 I made this using Fig Jam Sweet Spanish Temptation!!"

"This is delicious. I've made it with apple butter and plum butter (i just look at what I have in the fridge). Yum!"
"I'm surprised that this recipe is so popular! Each of the ingredients is delicious individually but the ingredients just don't work well together. This was beautiful when it came out of the oven and I was very optimistic when I put it out for my New Years Eve guests. Unfortunately, this dish was VERY GREASY, almost oily and slimy. It didn't hold its shape and just lay on the plate like a great oily blob. If Zero Stars had been available, I would have chosen that option."
"Awesome crowd pleaser! Make sure you thaw your pastry well and check and double check for any tears or holes in the pastry before baking. Served with water crackers and green apple slices. I put it on a hot plate to keep warm."
"I made this with strawberry preserves for company Friday night. It's deceptively simple to prepare and the presentation and taste are so impressive. This will be a staple of mine for entertaining from now on. I'm looking forward to trying it with different variations of preserves and nuts."
"I made this recipe as directed for New Years Eve. It was good, but not quite as great as I would have expected given the reviews. The pastry shell didn't quite crisp, so I think next time I will use the egg wash a few reviewers suggested. Also, the top of the rind tended to collapse as the cheese was consumed. I had to keep cutting away at it so that guests could eat the cheese towards the back. I think next time I would suggest cutting just the top of the rind off."
"Awesome with pepper jelly"
"this was absolutely amazing especially with the rosemary crackers I served with it. I omitted the almonds and used raspberry. I recommend waiting 10 min before cutting into it or else it will spill it all over. this was the last thing out of the oven at as potluck and still the first thing to go!"
"Delicious! I made it with raspberry preserves and it turned out just wonderful. Thanks for the great recipe!"
"I never would have guessed this could be so easy! Made it last weekend for my Wine and Cheese tasting. Easily the most favored one of the cheese offerings. Really, really good!"
"Rita, this was so yummy! The apricot preserves, almonds and creamy warm cheese in the pastry was a taste delight!!! So easy too. I served it with crisp round vegetable crackers! Excellent, thanks!"
"I made this recipe with apricot preserves on 1 and raspberry on another. when we have parties at work, I am told I have to bring in the baked brie, and it's gone in no time!! so delicious! the recipe couldn't be any easier."
"scseely must have used a really cheap brie...I had no trouble with this, and the taste was extraordinary."
"Awesome recipe! Used the 15.5 oz wheel and one sheet of the PP. Toasted the almonds and used razz preserves. Served w water crackers. My GF and I ate the whole thing by ourselves! That's our little secret! Goes great w/ a white wine also."
"Was a great hit!! Delicious & very easy. I added caramelized onions on top of the brie & used both jams (appricot and raspberry) following a favourite restaurant's recipe.
Next time, after the pastry is golden, I will leave it in the oven for another 10 min to allow the brie to melt throughout. This time the center was getting there, but not quite.
"I have made this with cranberry preserves in the past. Yummy. On Boxing Day I did it with Bacon Marmalade. OMG. So good!"
"My new favorite recipe!! Beautiful to look at and oh so easy!!!"
"A definite winner Rita! Made for happy hour with guest and everyone loved it! Used orange marmalade and toasted sliced almonds. Thanks for sharing!"
"Looks pretty, truthfully I think I just don't like Brie. Taste a little like a moldy green apple."
"very nice and presents well but nothing over the top for me. Tried it as written with apricot jam and that was okay. Did it again with strawberry jam and on top of that a few pieces of 70% cocoa chocolate. That was really nice too. Next time I think i'll make a basic mushroom and thyme pate and try it with that. Thanks for posting"
"Delicious! We made the apricot preserves ourselves by boiling down diced apricot pieces and a little sugar then giving it a quick blend. This was fantastic, thank you."
