Description

Melted brie plus sweet raspberry jam plus pretzel dough equals sweet and savory magic.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup Warm Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Granulated Sugar
  • 2-¼ teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
  • 4-½ cups Unbleached All-purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 10 cups Water
  • ⅔ cups Baking Soda
  • ½ cups Seedless Raspberry Jam
  • ¼ pounds Brie, Cut Into 1-inch Pieces
  • 1  Egg Yolk Beaten With The Below Amount Of Water (egg Wash)
  • 1 Tablespoon Water
  • Sea Salt For Sprinkling

Preparation

Combine water, sugar and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer; let it sit for 5 minutes or until foamy.

Add flour, salt and butter; stir to combine. Using a dough hook, knead dough on medium speed for 5 minutes until smooth, elastic and slightly tacky (alternately, you can turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead by hand for 10 minutes or until smooth, elastic and slightly tacky).

Shape dough into a ball and place it in a large, lightly greased bowl. Cover with lightly greased plastic wrap and let dough rise in a warm place for 1 hour until doubled.

When dough is nearly doubled, combine water and baking soda in a large stockpot. Bring to a boil. Heat oven to 400 F.

Punch down the dough. Roll it out on a lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Use a round biscuit or cookie cutter to cut out circles of dough. Re-roll the scraps as needed to make more cut outs.

Spoon a teaspoon or so of jam into the center of half the dough circles. Top with a piece of brie. Top with another dough circle to form a pie. Use your fingers or fork tines to seal the edges. Transfer pies to a lightly floured baking sheet or platter.

Place about 3 hand pies at a time in the boiling water bath and boil for 30 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, remove pies from the water and transfer to a parchment paper or silicone mat-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining pies, placing pies about 1 inch apart on baking sheets.

Combine the egg yolk and tablespoon of water in a small bowl.

Lightly brush tops of pies with egg wash, then sprinkle with sea salt. Bake 12 to 14 minutes until golden brown and puffed. Cool slightly on a cooling rack before serving.
