Sounds fancy, doesn’t it? Believe me, this is one of the easiest and most irresistible appetizers on the planet. Last week I hosted a small dinner party for my friends and was looking for a starter that complimented the menu. I had a left over block of homemade puff pastry in the freezer and used that as a starting point. It didn’t take me long to think of baked brie which, surprisingly, I have never made before though I have eaten and loved it many times. The apple compote can be made in advance if needed. This takes next to no time to assemble and the most difficult part is waiting until it comes out of the oven to dig in. My puff pastry unfolded a little bit during baking but I actually liked it that way because you could see the warm, gooey brie layered with apples. This was demolished by the end of the evening, and is a fantastic recipe to have in your repertoire. I’m fairly certain this will make an appearance on my Thanksgiving appetizer table this year.
