Gluten-Free Baked Brie Pastry
Do you love gluten-free puff pastry? Or maybe gluten-free baked brie pastry? Now you can make it at home with minimal time and ingredients, whenever you are hosting a party or craving a good gluten-free baked brie.
I use Gluten-Free Puff Pastry Dough for several things. I made Gluten-Free Apple Turnovers a few weeks back. Every so often when I don't want to make homemade pie crust for my Gluten-Free Chicken Pot Pie I will use the gluten-free puff pastry dough instead. It saves me a lot of time and I love how buttery and flaky the gluten-free puff pastry is.
My husband and I used to buy baked brie pastries during the holidays before I was diagnosed non-celiac gluten-intolerant. It was one of our favorite gluten-free appetizers to bring to parties. Since going gluten-free we haven't been able to find a ready-to-bake gluten-free version.
Schar is launching their gluten-free puff pastry dough nation wide and we couldn't be happier. We found it at our local Safeway.
Did you know that you can ask your grocery store to order products? If your local grocery store doesn't carry it you can request them to bring it in store but usually you have to order it a case at a time. Most grocery stores have a product request form at their customer service counter.
How long will baked brie stay good in the refrigerator?
If you don't finish the gluten-free baked brie pastry you can store in in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. Just note that the gluten-free pastry will soften. Simply reheat the leftovers in a microwave or oven.
How can I keep my gluten-free puff pastry from cracking?
If the gluten-free puff pastry starts to dry out, run a paper towel under cold water then squeeze it until the excess water is out. Place the paper towel over the puff pastry and let it sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
I don't usually have any problems with this Schar Puff Pastry, but every once in a while I will get some cracks. The beauty about using puff pastry is that it is easy to press it together if a crack forms. Also, with this recipe, you fold and press the pastry dough together and it doesn't have to look perfect.
Again, you can use my gluten free puff pastry dough recipe if you want, instead of store-bought puff pastry dough.
Should you cut the rind off brie before baking?
The rind has a bit of a bitter taste to it. You don't have to cut it off. If you decide to cut it off for this gluten-free baked brie pastry make sure to only cut the top off. The rind on the side and bottom will help hold the brie in the pastry while it bakes. You can cut all the rind off, but you risk the brie melting out and cracks or openings in the gluten-free puff pastry dough.
What jams go with baked brie?
Gluten-free baked brie can be served with almost any jam. It depends on what flavor profiles you like. I tend to serve my gluten-free baked brie pastry with a tart cherry (shown in the photos), a jalapeno jam, or an apricot jam.
You only need three ingredients to make this gluten-free appetizer: gluten-free puff pastry dough, a wheel of brie, and a tart or spicy jam. You don't have to bake the jam inside. You can serve it on the side.
As you can see from the video, it's really easy to make a gluten-free baked brie pastry.
