Billy Law's - Baked Brie Cheese

To kick off a party, you simply can’t go wrong with chilled sparkling wine and some tasty cheese, especially a baked one.

 The light golden bubbly is rich yet refreshing with generous citrus fruit flavours enhanced with creamy nutty characters. It is an excellent pairing with soft white cheese like brie or Camembert. Here Billy shows us how to create one of his favourite party starters that never fail to please the crowd, the baked brie cheese with apricot jam and walnuts.  


  • 1 small wheel (200g) Double Brie Cheese 
  • 1 puff pastry sheet, thawed 
  • 1 tablespoon apricot jam 
  • 1 handful walnuts, crushed 
  • 1 tablespoon fresh full cream milk 
  • A handful of crackers


  1. Preheat oven to 200C fan-force. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place pastry sheet on the tray, use sharp knife and trim all four corner to make a round shape.
  3. Put the cheese in the middle of the pastry. Spread apricot jam over the top evenly then sprinkle walnuts all over.
  4. Fold pastry upward and over the cheese from one edge, then continue on counter-clockwise, overlapping a little at each fold.
  5. Use a knife, cut a hole on top of the pastry to let steam out so it doesn’t explode while baking.
  6. Brush the pastry with milk. Bake in oven for 30 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Place on a rack and allow to cool for at least 20 minutes before serving. Serve on a wooden board with crackers, and enjoy with a glass of Jacob’s Creek Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir!
