This is my first monthly Recipe Redux post. Woo! This month the Recipe Redux is celebrating their five year anniversary! I took inspiration from Zen & Spice’s Baked Brie with Honey, Peaches & Basil to create this recipe. Brie is my all time favorite cheese and baking it just makes it even better. Brie is a soft cow’s milk cheese named after the French region it comes from. One ounce of Brie contains about 95 calories, 6 grams of protein, 8 grams of fat, and 52 milligrams of calcium. Brie is definitely not your everyday food. It is high in saturated fat and sodium like many other cheeses, however when I’m feeling like indulging or have an event to attend brie is always on the list.
Peach & Brie Galette with Basil
- 1/2 sheet frozen puff pasty, thawed
- 2 yellow peaches, sliced
- 6 oz Brie, sliced
- 1 tbsp honey
- Handfull fresh basil, chopped
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick cooking spray. Put puff pastry dough on lined baking sheet (I used a half sheet pan). Add slices of Brie to cover the center of the dough leaving a 1/2 inch border. Layer sliced peaches on top of Brie. Drizzle one tablespoon of honey over peaches and Brie. If dough has come to room temperature place in refrigerator for about ten minutes. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with fresh basil. Let cool before slicing. Enjoy warm or cold!
