Ingredients

  • 1 (17.3 ounce) package frozen puff pastry (see Note)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 (16-ounce) wheel Brie
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg , beaten

Eyes:

  • Sliced apples
  • pecans pieces , craisins, or raisins for eyes

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Thaw puff pastry on the counter for approximately 15 to 20 minutes and unfold.
  3. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Saute the pecans in the butter until golden brown, approximately 5 minutes. Add the cinnamon and stir until pecans are coated well. Set aside.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry into a 14-in. square. Cut off corners to make a circle.
  5. Place Brie in the center of the pastry. Place the pecan mixture on top of the Brie and sprinkle the brown sugar over the mixture.
  6. Fold pastry over cheese, trimming as necessary, and pinch edges to seal.
  7. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet, seam side down. Roll remaining pastry into a 14-in. square. Cut four 1-in. strips; cut strips in half crosswise. Wrap strips around Brie, trimming as necessary. You don't want to make too thick of a layer of strips or it won't cook all the way through. Discard scraps. Brush the beaten egg over top and side of Brie.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. For eyes, cut two circles from apple slices; place on top of Brie as eyes. Top each circle with a dried cranberry, raisins, or pecan pieces. Serve warm with apple slices and crackers.

Recipe Notes

Puff pastry comes with 2 sheets of dough. Brie comes in either 8 ounce wheels or 16 ounce wheels. For a 16 ounce wheel you will need 2 sheets. If you use an 8 ounce wheel you will only need 1 sheet of puff pastry. Use the trimmed dough, roll it out and cut strips for the mummy. If you have too much puff pastry dough layered it won't bake all the way through so make sure you roll it thin enough.
