  • Meanwhile, chop tomatoes. In a small bowl, mix oil and butter.

  • Cut filo sheets into 12-inch squares. One at a time, brush squares lightly with butter mixture and stack.

  • Spread chopped tomatoes, basil, and toasted nuts in center of filo stack in a round that matches the size of the cheese. Place cheese on top of tomato mixture. Fold corners of filo stack, one at a time, over cheese and brush lightly with butter mixture. Press filo against cheese to make a smooth package.

  • Place wrapped cheese, smooth side up, in 9-inch pie pan. Brush top of filo with remaining butter mixture.

  • Bake in a 350° regular or convection oven until filo is golden, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool about 10 minutes.

  • With a wide spatula, transfer filo-wrapped brie to a plate. To serve, cut a big X in center or cut off a corner so guests can scoop out cheese mixture.

Chef's Notes

Notes: Thaw frozen filo dough in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours. You can prepare cheese through step 5 up to 1 day ahead; cover and chill. Serve with thin baguette slices or crackers.
