Ingredients
  

  • 2 Nectarines sliced into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 2 tbsp. Butter
  • 1 tbsp. Maple syrup
  • 1 sheet Puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 8 oz. Wheel of brie cheese (or wedge)
  • 1 Egg beaten
  • Springs Fresh thyme

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 425F degrees.
  • In a medium sauté pan over medium heat, combine the butter, maple syrup, and sliced nectarines. Cook until the nectarines have softened and the sauce has thickened, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
  • Roll out the thawed puff pastry and lay flat on a parchment lined rimmed baking sheet.  Place the Brie in the center of the pastry and remove a little of the rind from the top of the Brie, leaving the bottom and sides intact. (No need to do any trimming if using a wedge of brie). Fold the corners of the pastry over the cheese, so it’s entirely wrapped. Brush the pastry with the egg. 
  • Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until rich golden brown. Spoon the nectarines and juices over the Brie. Top with fresh thyme. Enjoy as is or with your baguette or crackers.
