Brie & Blackberry Puffs

Brie cheese and blackberry jam are amazing together.  Add light, fluffy and buttery puff pastry, and you have yourself a quick heavenly appetizer.  I decided to be bold and try blue cheese.  Yep.  Blue cheese and blackberry jam do not go together.  Please ignore the block of blue cheese in all of these pictures.  I didn’t have much brie cheese left, and I hadn’t tasted the blue cheese and blackberry jam puff pastry yet, so I didn’t know that I wouldn’t be recommending not paring the two together.  So, maybe just put your finger over the blue cheese in the pictures and just pretend it’s not there.  Yep. That’ll be good.

Ok.  So, this appetizer is utterly easy to prepare.  You need like 3 ingredients and your two hands.  Oh, and an oven and baking sheet.

Ingredients:

1 box puff pastry, just thawed enough but not overly thawed

1 block brie cheese

1 jar blackberry jam (with seeds, it’s better)

Directions:

Since I always overthaw my puff pastry I end up with this gooey mess of two sheets of puff pastry that don’t want to come apart even though the cardboard between the two sheets is supposed to prevent this.  SO. Don’t thaw your puff pastry for too long.  And, since mine is always overthawed (yep, just made another word up) I have to roll the sheets out and make a big mess.  Try to avoid this too.

1) Cut little blocks of the brie cheese.  Cut little squares of the puff pastry.  Place the little block of brie cheese in the middle of the little square of the puff pastry.  Smear a small spoonful of blackberry jam over the little block of cheese.

2) Pull the edges of the puff pastry over the cheese and jam.

3) Place on a greased baking sheet.

4) Do with remaining puff pastry.

5) Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve immediately.
