  • 2 T salted butter
  • 1 egg - beaten with 1 T of water
  • 1 T honey
  • 24 almonds - roasted and salted
  • 12 oz Brie* - cut into 24 pieces and kept very cold
  • 24 wonton wrappers - large
  • Parchment paper


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Melt butter and set aside.
  • Whisk egg with 1 T of water until smooth
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Place 24 wonton wrapper on the parchment paper
  • Lightly brush wonton wrappers with melted butter.
  • Place a piece of brie in the center of the wonton wrapper
  • Top brie with an almond
  • Drizzle with a couple of drops of honey

To Make the Purse

  • Fold corners diagonally to the center, pinching together the opposite corners
  • Hold the pouch in the palm of one hand, gently twist the top of the pouch to seal.
  • Brush each purse with butter
  • Brush each purse with egg-wash
  • Place on a parchment-lined sheet pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the purses are golden brown
  • Serve warm


*Place brie in the freezer 30 minutes prior to cutting the brie.  This will make it a little firmer and make it easier to work with.
These can be made a day in advance and stored tightly covered in the refrigerator.  Just pop them in the oven just before serving and cook for about 10 minutes.  Serve warm.
