We Need

  1. Brie cheese wheel
  2. Cookie cutter
  3. Wire cake cutter or bread knife.
  4. Jam

We can cut brie wheels with a sharp fillet knife, bread knife, or tasteless tooth tread. A soft cheese knife is also nice to have but not everybody has it. I have a small one and for larger brie wheels it is not big enough.

How To Make

  1. Cut the wheel in half. I used a bread knife to cut the brie wheel.

*A wire cutter for a cake works great too if you have one. Make a small cut with a kitchen knife to start cutting and then the wire cutter goes easily.

2. Remove the top of the brie wheel and make the cut out by using the cookie cutter.

*I used paper from cheese to make the cutout, so I don’t have to do an extra clean cutting board.

You can also make a cutout design on paper, place it on the top of the rind and make cut it around with a very sharp knife. Make sure the design is simple, so you don’t have to cut so many details.

3. Spread a small amount of the jam on the bottom of the brie wheel.

4. Place the top with a cutout on the bottom of the brie wheel.

No matter how you choose to serve brie cheese, it is sure to be a hit at your next party. So get creative!
