brie en croute

Over the weekend we celebrated the baptism of my fiancé’s baby niece. As the newly appointed godparents (yay!), we wanted to make something easy and yummy for the after-party. Thanks to a tip from my friend, Jenn, I uncovered the easiest recipe ever: brie en croute (a.k.a. brie in crust). This melty, fruity, deliciously cheesy treat was a huge hit! At the request of many guests, here is the recipe in 5 easy steps:

1 Tube of crescent rolls (or a large sheet of any puff pastry)
1 8 oz Brie wheel
Topping of your choice (jams work very well)
Crackers for serving

Step 1: Lay tube of crescent rolls on a baking sheet and smush the triangles together so you have a flat crust (tip: I broke the roll in half and put the two halves next to each other to make a rectangle rather than a really long strip)
Step 2:  Place the brie wheel in the center of your crescent dough
Step 3: Top the brie with your favorite sweet or savory treat (We choose apricot jelly for one and balsamic cherries for the other)
Step 4: Wrap the 4 sides of the pastry dough up around the brie and topping and remove any excess dough
Step 5: Bake uncovered on a non-stick cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melty and gooey; serve hot with crackers — we love water crackers with sesame!
