QUESTION: Can you freeze pastry-wrapped brie?
Can you freeze brie wrapped in a pastry to get ahead for Thanksgiving? How long will it keep?
Making appetizers ahead is a real timesaver, so I'm happy to say that yes, you can freeze unbaked pastry-wrapped brie. Prepare brie according to the recipe, but do not brush with the egg wash if recipe calls for it. Wrap brie tightly in plastic wrap and/or foil and freeze for up to 1 month.
When ready to bake, brush the frozen pastry with the egg wash (if required) and bake in a 350°F (175°C) oven for 45 to 50 minutes.
