Makes: 6 servings

Prep: 20 mins

Bake: 35 mins

Ingredients
  • 1 package  frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 2/3 cup walnuts, toasted
  • 4 crisp apples, such as gala, 1 finely chopped and 3 sliced
  • 2 5 ounces brie or camembert cheese wheels
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees . Lay the puff pastry sheets on a work surface. Place half of the walnuts and chopped apple in the center of each. Place a cheese wheel on top, then trim the corners of each pastry sheet to make a disk. Brush the edges lightly with water and fold up and over to cover the cheese; pinch lightly to seal. Place seam side down on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet and bake until golden-brown, 30 to 35 minutes.
  2. Transfer each cheese pastry to a platter and let cool for 10 minutes; serve with the sliced apples.
Tip Smart move
  • Before serving, keep apple slices in a bowl of water with lemon juice to prevent browning.
Tip Time saver
  • Toast walnuts a day ahead.
