This month the What’s Baking challenge is hosted by Cara from The Boys Made Me Do It! Her theme for the month was puff pastry. If you haven’t seen any of my other posts on puff pastry then I need to tell you that puff pastry and I are mortal enemies. It does not like me and I do not like it. We do not get along. So when I saw the theme for the month my first reaction was to skip this month’s challenge.
Then we decided to have people over for snacks one evening. I was scrolling through my list of recipes I wanted to make and I came to one for Brie en Croute. It looked extremely simple and I absolutely adore baked Brie. The bonus is that it uses puff pastry and if I could get it to work then this would be my entry for this month.
Luckily I put the puff pastry out almost an hour before I needed it to thaw. It was fairly workable by that time and cooperated better then it had in the past. This recipe was a cinch to make and it ended up tasting amazing! I’d have to say this was a good experience with puff pastry and I’d even make this recipe again!
