A wheel of brie is wrapped in puff pastry and baked, then topped with a mixture of apple, raisins and onion cooked in a brown sugar, vinegar, and lemon mixture flavored with paprika, ginger, and mustard seed.

  • Servings: Serves 8 to 12

Ingredients:

1 Wheel Brie Cheese
Frozen Puff Pastry Dough
Melted Butter, for brushing pastry
6 Apples, peeled, cored and diced
6 oz Mild Cider Vinegar, ¾ cup
1 lb Dark Brown Sugar
¼ cup Finely Chopped Onion
½ cup Seedless Golden Raisins
2 tsp Mustard Seeds
1-2 tsp Freshly Grated or 1 Tablespoon Ground Ginger
2 tsp Salt
2 Tbsp Paprika
Grated Rind & Juice of 1 Lemon
1 Tbsp Flour
¼ cup Water

Directions:

For brie, use frozen puff pastry dough to wrap a round of brie cheese. Brush with melted butter and bake at 350 degrees until pastry is golden (about 30 minutes); try to do this just before serving so it'll be warm.

Combine all ingredients except flour and water. Cook over low heat until apples and onions are tender (about 25 minutes).

Combine flour and water; stir into chutney. Simmer 5 minutes to thicken slightly. Serve hot or at room temperature over baked brie.

Helpful Tips:

Peaches or mangoes can be substituted for apples.
