When its cold outside and friend gets engaged, baked brie is is just the hors d’oeuvre to bring to the party.
Warm Baked Brie
Thaw a sheet of puffed pastry dough (found in frozen food aisle)
Roll out a bit, still keeping a square shape
Spread apricot preserves in the center of the square
Place a wheel of your favorite Brie cheese
At this point you can get creative and add what ever your heart desires-
various fruit preserves, brown sugar, dried fruit, nuts. Just make sure the dough is thick enough to not break.
Wrap the brie and filling. * I fold in the four corners so you are left with four more corners. Trim some of the dough to reduce bulk and use for decoration on top.
Flip the wrapped Brie over and onto a baking sheet with parchment
Cut out leaves or other designs out of trimmed dough and place on top
Bake for 20-25 minutes according to your puff pastry directions
Serve with sliced Granny Smith apples and crackers
* I use Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets, 400 degrees.
