Baked Brie: (Source: Fall Edition of Entertain & Celebrate Magazine)


1/2 (14-1 ounce) package refrigerated pie crusts
1 (13.2 ounce) wheel of Brie, frozen
2 tablespoons firmly packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon dried cranberries
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Sliced green apples, to serve

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 14-inch circle. Using a sharp knife, cut a 3-inch strip from dough. Using a 3-inch leaf shapped cutter, cut a leaf shape from dough strip. Place crust on prepared pan.
  3. Remove top of Brie rind. Place cheese on crust. Sprinkle with brown sugar, and top with cranberries. Fold crust over cranberries. Top with leaf cutout. Brush egg wash onto crust.
  4. Bake until lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve with apple slices.

*Tip: Freezing Brie keeps it from melting through pastry while baking.
