Brie & Jam Hand Pies

Brie & Jam Hand Pies from www.somethingswanky.com | I'm newly obsessed with Brie Cheese as a dessert, and this is ridiculously easy to make a delicious! #brie #pie #recipe

If you follow me on Instagram, you know about my newly discovered obsession with brie cheese as a dessert item.

Oh. my. gosh. Where has this stuff been my whole life???

I’ve actually only ever eaten brie once before (as in, one other time before last weekend in my entire life). It was on fruit and bread, and I liked it. But for some reason, I always just thought of Brie as a restaurant-type food. Not anything I’d ever have in my own kitchen. No particular reason, it was just compartmentalized in my head that way.

I bought a wedge of the stuff last weekend on an impulse and asked you all for some of your favorite ways to eat it. You all had some AMAZING suggestions, and I’m looking forward to digging in to all of them at some point (very soon). I discovered that I LOVE it baked with brown sugar and pecans with french bread (I wanted to try it with apples, but I forgot to buy them :/ ). And my friend Lisa suggested pairing it with apricot jam and puff pastry.

I had to sub in some pie crust for the puff pastry, but it still turned out phenomenally! What a terrific pairing the brie and the apricot jam make!! And all wrapped up in a buttery, flaky pie crust makes it possibly one of the best comfort foods I’ve ever eaten. Seriously wow!

Brie & Jam Hand Pies

Ingredients

  • 1 wedge of brie cheese*
  • 2 refrigerated pie crusts*
  • 1/2 - 1 cup apricot jam*
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • sugar for sprinkling

Instructions

  1. Roll out the pie crusts to make them slightly thinner than they are right out of the package. Cut out 3" circles, squares, or other shapes from the pie crust.
  2. Cut off approximately 1 tablespoon-sized chunks of the brie cheese, and place each chunk on 1/2 of the sections of the pie crust dough.
  3. Spread 1 tsp. of apricot jam over each of the remaining sections of pie crust dough.
  4. Place each jam covered piece of dough over each of the pieces of cheese. Use a fork to seal the edges of the dough and place on a parchment or silicon lined baking sheet.
  5. Brush the egg wash over top of each pie. Sprinkle with sugar.
  6. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes until pie crust looks golden. Serve warm!

Notes about this recipe:

  • The cheese and jam will definitely ooze out of the sides some, no way around that. They’re still delicious!
  • These measurements are SUPER approximate. Changing them up won’t make a drastic difference at all. And I’m sorry that I just put a “wedge” of cheese– I can’t remember how many ounces it was. Next time I go to the store I’ll check so I can update that! But, in general, I think the wedge sizes at grocery stores are all probably pretty similar.

  4. I’ve never eaten Brie cheese. This sounds interesting. But anything with cheese has to be good.

  5. Do you think the Brie would freeze well? I just made cranberry orange chutney for the first time and I still have lot’s left over, so I’m thinking about using that in the handpies , If Brie freezes well, it would work great for my kids lunch boxs!

    I love using brie as an appetizer! Put any kind of jam or maple syrup or honey and some brown sugar, maybe a few nuts and Voila! instant gourmet dish! But you know what I made this weekend that was awesome? A walnut fig cheese ball. 4 oz goat cheese, 4 oz. cream cheese, and 1/4 cup fig jam (which was surprisingly easy to find). Mix the cheeses together, add jam, then roll in walnuts. So easy and yummy!

  7. Isn’t brie so good!?! And your pies look amazing :) Definitely pinning this for later!

  8. Great idea! I have made an appetizer with a whole wheel of brie wrapped in a puff pastry, but I love the idea of doing individual ones. I might have to steal this idea for a future get together.

    Those look INCREDIBLE! I too have a Brie-for-dessert obsession…or just a brie-on-everything obsession. My favorite restaurant serves the best triple layer, big as your face Brie and raspberry stuffed French toast. Best thing I’ve ever eaten status!

  10. Brie cheese!!! and jam!!! Fabulous combo!

  17. I’ve got a ton of brie posts – I think I may have a slight addiction. It’s all kinds of amazing. I have a wedge in the fridge right now. I might have to steal your heart-shape idea for snack for the kiddos. Super cute.
