Tips for Whipped Brie

With just a few ingredients, this recipe is super simple, but we have a few pointers to make it totally foolproof.

  • Goldilocks of Brie – Warmed brie can often take on a weird texture after it cools, so it needs to be enjoyed while hot. Room-temperature brie can be cakey and dry. Whipped brie meets in the middle with great texture, and it lasts longer.
  • Use a double or triple cream brie. This yielded the best, silky results.
  • Use a serrated knife to cut off the casing while the cheese is still cold. Pry up little embedded bits after the cheese has softened to prevent wasting precious brie.
  • Use the whisk or paddle attachment on a stand mixer at low speed. It takes about 10 minutes, so you can do this with an electric mixer, but you’ll stand there the whole time. I’m not sure you’ll have enough arm power to do this by hand.
  • Do NOT use a food processor. Perhaps mine is just too high-powered, but after 5 minutes, the brie was so agitated that it heated, separated, and curdled.
  • Use enough brie. You need a larger portion for it to be able to whip properly — I’d use a minimum of 13 ounces.
  • Do not let the brie get too warm, and DO NOT microwave it to make it warmer faster. It will separate when you whip it.

Storage, Make Ahead and Freezing

We think It’s pretty unlikely that you’ll have leftovers! But if you do, you can store them in the refrigerator.

Make-Ahead: Whip the brie up to 24 hours ahead of time and store in the refrigerator. Allow it to come to room temperature before serving.

Refrigerator: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Freezer: We do not recommend freezing baked brie.

Common Questions About Whipped Brie

What is brie wrapped in?

Brie is wrapped in a thick rind which is an edible mold.

What is the easiest way to remove brie rind?

First, place the brie on a cutting board with a flat side down. Then, using a sharp knife, slice off the top of the rind.

Next, flip the brie over and slice off the top portion of the rind. Then, slide the knife under the remaining rind and circle around to loosen it from the cheese before peeling it away.

Can I eat brie if I’m allergic to penicillin?

While the mold is created by using strains from the Penicillium group, the rind does not contain the same properties as the antibiotic.
