  • 1 sheet puff pastry dough
  • 1 wheel brie cheese
  • 3 tbsp pumpkin butter or apple butter homemade or store bought
  • 1 egg
  • 1 sage leaf
  • 1 honey pretzel twist


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Line a baking dish with parchment paper and roll out the puff pastry sheet on top.
  • Spoon about 3 tbsps of pumpkin butter onto the center of the puff pastry.
  • Place the brie cheese wheel on top of the pumpkin butter spread.
  • Draw a circle with a butter knife around the cheese, leaving about 2 inches of dough around the border.
  • Bring the edges of the puff pastry dough to the top so that the whole wheel of cheese is covered.
  • Cut 5 strings of kitchen twine in equal length and lay out on the parchment paper in a spider’s web formation.
  • Place the dough wrapped cheese on top of the twine and bring up each opposite side of twine, tying in the center.
  • Make an egg wash with 1 egg and water, whisk it together and brush over the top of the puff pastry dough.
  • Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or so, until the dough is golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven, cutting and discarding the twine.
  • Place a honey pretzel twist on top for the stem and sage leaf.
  • Serve immediately with crackers, apples and some nuts.
