Another Brie Recipe – Baked Brie

Yep, this is the third brie recipe in the last few weeks. I promise this will be the last one for a while. Brie has been on the brain and in the fridge!

This Baked Brie is an elegant, yet not fussy appetizer. Although I could eat it for a main course and call it a day. It calls for only 3 ingredients and it’s done in no time.

My dear friend, Amy L., makes this for many of our family get-togethers. I’ve come to look forward to it as a regular treat along with her company. Watch Amy L. make this beautiful dish – you’ll see how easy it really is.

Here’s what you’ll need to get started…apricot preserves (or another favorite preserve; cranberry would be perfect for the holidays), 1 package of canned crescent roll dough and 4-6 oz. (in weight) of brie.

Begin by preheating the oven according to the directions on the crescent roll dough (usually 350-375° F). Next, on a cookie sheet or baking stone, roll out the crescent dough to create one large piece, overlapping and gently crimping sections together where needed.

Then spread a thin (or not so thin if you want to use more) layer of the preserves all over the dough.

When finished spreading the preserves, place the brie in the middle of the dough. You don’t have to remove the casing, but if you’re like me, go for it. Or you could just remove the top of the casing.

Carefully wrap the brie with the dough like a pretty package, delicately crimping the edges to keep in place.

Bake in preheated oven according to crescent roll directions (about 15 minutes) or until crescent dough begins browning.

Oh, isn’t it lovely! And can you believe that it was that easy?!?

When finished baking, transfer the baked brie with a spatula to a serving dish (or you could just eat it straight off of the baking sheet right there over the stove) and add your favorite fruits and/or crackers. Serve warm. Apples, grapes and pears are a great compliment.
