Gluten Free Brie en CrouteOnce I discovered how to make a gluten free puff pastry for Homemade Hot Pockets, the world was my oyster.  This pastry works as a pie crust, for little tarts and quiches or to wrap sausages for pigs in a blanket.  Of course, I had to wrap cheese in it, too.  And what better cheese to wrap than a wheel of Brie?

Gluten Free Brie en Croute #AppetizerWeek + Giveaway
  • 1 wheel Brie at least 8 oz, but up to 12 oz
  • 2 Tbsp apricot jam (preferably all-fruit)
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp slivered almonds
  • ¾ cup millet flour
  • ¾ cup brown rice flour
  • ¼ cup arrowroot flour
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp xanthan gum or psyllium husk powder
  • 1 cup butter, cut into pieces
  • ½ cup cold water
  1. Combine the millet flour, brown rice flour, arrowroot flour, cornstarch, xanthan gum, salt and butter in a food processor.
  2. Add the water and pulse until a dough forms.
  3. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
  4. Remove from refrigerator and roll out to ½ inch thick on a surface dusted with gluten free flour.
  5. Mix honey and jam in a small bowl.
  6. Place cheese wheel on dough and cut the dough into a circle about 2-3 inches wider than the cheese.
  7. Remove the cheese and spread jam mixture and nuts in the center of the dough.
  8. Replace the cheese in the center of the dough on top of the nuts.
  9. Gently wrap the dough up and over the cheese.
  10. Pinch it to seal it all over the cheese.
  11. Carefully, using a spatula, flip the dough covered brie over and onto a baking sheet (so jam is now on the top, though you cannot see it).
  12. If desired, use any scraps of dough to make decorations for the top of the wheel.
  13. Use egg white to attach them.
  14. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until dough is nicely browned all over.
  15. Serve warm.
