1 small wheel of brie (about 6 to 8 inches), chilled
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed, plus extra for (optional) design
1 egg, beaten with
1 teaspoon water

Score the side of a wheel of brie all the way around with a sharp paring knife. Cut directly on the "equator" through
the rind. Using a long piece of string or dental floss, wrap the string around the brie on the newly made cut. Loop
one end of the string over the other (a half knot). Then pulling the ends of the string in opposite directions, cut the
brie in half.
Press the dried cranberries on one cut side of the brie, and the walnuts on the other. Quickly put the 2 sides back
together with the cranberries on top of the walnuts. Press together and stu􀁷 back in any cranberries or walnuts
that fell out.
Roll out a thawed sheet of puff pastry on a floured surface to about 1/8-inch thickness. Place brie in center of
pastry. Gently pull up edges to ensure you have enough dough to entirely wrap the brie. You can trim o􀁷 the
corners if there is too much dough. Brush the dough with the egg wash. Fold one edge of the dough over the brie
and then the opposite side. Fold over the remaining edges and complexly encase the brie. You can trim o􀁷 excess
pieces of dough, if necessary. Flip the brie over so the seam is at the bottom; gently press in the sides to snug the
dough against the brie. Brush the top and sides of the wrapped brie with egg wash.
If you choose to decorate the brie with cut-out shapes of additional pu􀁷 pastry, use very cold (almost still frozen)
dough to ensure sharp lines. Lightly brush the decorative pieces with egg wash. Place the brie in the freezer for one
hour (this is a crucial step; see note below).
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the brie on the prepared baking sheet. Bake on the center rack in preheated oven until it is browned and
leaking cheese, about 20 minutes. (Only rarely does the brie not leak through, but 20 to 25 minutes is about how
long it takes to melt the cheese and brown the pastry.)
