‘Tis the season for holiday parties, which means it’s time to bring out the baked Brie in pastry!

Reny Picot baked Brie in pastry is the easy, elegant, and classic appetizer that’s perfect for holiday parties or even just for keeping your crackers company on a chilly night in.

Each and every Reny Picot baked Brie in pastry begins with Old Europe Cheese’s award-winning Brie, which is then hand-wrapped with an incredibly fresh brioche pastry for that distinct homemade touch. To stay true to the foundation of all Reny Picot Cheeses—only the freshest, highest quality ingredients are used to create the tender brioche pastry.

Old Europe Cheese makes the brioche-style dough from scratch for the baked Brie in pastry at an adjacent bakery designed specifically for this product.

In the shiny new bakery, Old Europe Cheese bakers begin by blending milk, eggs, and flour in mixers large enough to hold 500 pounds per batch. The dough is then placed in the cooler to rise overnight. Next, it’s run through a dough sheeter that, in the same way that croissants are made, folds it, adding layers of butter after each fold, creating a rich and delicate pastry. Bakers then encase each Brie round in the pastry by hand before brushing the tops with eggs. The trays of Brie in pastry then go into a high humidity proofer where it rises again. After the final rising, the Brie in pastry is baked and vacuum packed.

Old Europe Cheese’s baked Brie in pastry are always fresh, never frozen, and have a 75-day refrigerated shelf life from the day of shipment. They come party-ready in either a beautiful full-color gloss box or a clear plastic dome with a full-color label.

The best way to experience Reny Picot baked Brie in pastry is to enjoy warm out of the oven, radiating with creamy, flakey, melt-in-your-mouth goodness.

Simply preheat the oven to 375°F. Remove baked Brie in pastry from the container and plastic overwrap and place on a cooking sheet. Bake for 15 to 25 minutes on the middle rack or until center is hot and creamy throughout.

Baked Brie in pastry takes “rich and luxurious” to a whole new level. Add a few friends, some Christmas croons and carols playing in the background, and you’ve got yourself a bona fide party situation.
