Blackberry Thyme Baked Brie En Croute is a gorgeous and super simple appetizer for a get-together. This baked brie recipe is made in puff pastry and baked! You can bet this won’t go unnoticed!
Well, none of this week’s “How Big Is The Kid?!” baking experiment is unfortunate. It’s cheese wrapped in carbs. And then baked until molten and golden brown.
Praise the sugar gods for keeping my numbers in cheese, because I admit that I ate about half of this wheel of cheese while shooting it. Huck, the dog, also got his fair share when I wasn’t looking…
Like mother like son. And the human son was also quite pleased with how this turned out, if his kicks to my lungs were any indication.
According to my pregnancy app (I use Ovia Pregnancy for anyone curious), they say at 30 weeks he was the size of a brie en croute.
I can only assume that they meant a much larger wheel of brie than the mini 8 ounce version I baked up for this – but let’s be honest, I probably didn’t need a full one pound wheel baked in puff pastry just laying around the house… Need is different than want.
I sure as hell WANTED a full wheel just laying around the house. But such is life.
Summer is in full swing in Seattle – with over 40 days of NO RAIN. Two good things are coming out of that, one being that my tomatoes are absolutely thriving, and two that our blackberries are finally getting the clue that it is time to ripen.
And they are really taking that clue seriously.
Our little street is packed with berries, some ripe and ready to pick, and others still green so I will have a good rotation of berries to pick the rest of summer.
Huck is a champion blackberry picker and gets his own low hanging berries right from the prickly vines. In 20 minutes we cleaned house, picking some of the most delicious, warm blackberries for this recipe (and a pie I promised Ben). Only one brush with stinging nettles stymied me – which is a victory in itself since I was out there in shorts and a tank top ambling through the brambles. *Slow clap*.
What is this Blackberry Thyme Baked Brie En Croute recipe best served with?
I like to use crackers or bread crisps! Anything sturdy to scoop and eat!
Can I take the thyme out of this Blackberry Thyme Baked Brie En Croute recipe?
The thyme was a lovely savory component to the sweetness of the berries. And I 11/10 recommend. But if you want a sweet baked brie, you can omit it from this Blackberry Thyme Baked Brie En Croute and it is still divine.
