Who doesn’t love warm, melty, gooey cheese?

Swaddle it in flaky, buttery pastry and it’s even more irresistible — if that’s possible.

That’s what you get with Marin French Cheese’s Baked Brie en Croute.

America’s longest continually operating cheese company that was founded in 1865, Marin French Cheese brings back this popular product for the holidays through the end of this year. I had a chance to try a sample recently.

Its brie, inspired by the luscious triple cremes of France, gets encased in pastry dough made by La Boulangerie of San Francisco. It’s a simple idea. But the execution is top-notch.

Just bake in the oven for 20 minutes or so until the pastry turns deeply golden.

The pastry baked up with crackling crisp layers like a croissant. Cut it open to find a big puddle of ever so soft, melty cheese.

It's impossible to say "no'' to this.

It comes neatly packaged. Just bake in your oven.

A 10.5-oz brie en croute ($12.99) will serve 4 — if your guests don’t lunge for seconds. Look for it in the refrigerator section of Whole Foods, Lunardi’s, Lucky’s, Save Mart, and Nugget Markets.
