Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Clear a spot for a large baking sheet in the freezer. Keep puff pastry in the fridge until ready to use. Unroll puff pastry, discarding the wax paper, then place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. (TIP: If pastry is sticky, coat your hands with some flour!) Place baking sheet with puff pastry in the freezer for 5 min while you prep remaining ingredients. Slice brie into 1/4-inch slices. Beat egg with 1 tsp water in a
Remove baking sheet with puff pastry from the freezer and spread cranberry spread down the centre. Evenly spread cranberry spread, lengthwise, across the middle of puff pastry. Leave a 1/2-inch border at the top and bottom. Arrange brie slices horizontally on top of cranberry spread. Starting with your knife to the right of cranberry and brie filling, make cuts moving your knife towards the lengthwise edge of pastry to create four 2-inch-wide strips. Repeat on the left side of filling. Alternating strips from right and left sides, fold pastry strips over filling to cover. (TIP: For best results, make sure strips overlap and tuck the ends underneath the braid for a neater look!)
Brush sides and top of pastry with egg wash, then sprinkle 1/8 tsp salt over top. Bake in the middle of the oven for 10 min. Reduce the oven temperature to 400°F and continue to bake until pastry is golden-brown and cheese is melted, 20-30 min. Remove from the oven and allow puff pastry braid to cool on the baking sheet for 5-8 min on a wire rack
Transfer puff pastry braid to a serving platter. Cut puff pastry braid into strips and serve.
