Crescent Wrapped Brie, with recipe

This is a great treat for a Christmas gathering. Plus it is SUPER easy. 

I have made this a few times already and blogged about it HERE in 2012 and HERE in January 2014


But I managed to remember to take a few pictures this time!!!

I missed a step in between here.When you put the Brie round on the pastry, before putting the other sheet on top, you can smear the top of the cheese with jam or filling for extra yummy goodness. 
I usually use Apricot filling...but forgot this time. 


It came out BEAUTIFUL!!! 

This is the recipe I use, but Pillsbury has many others on their website.

Ingredients

1
can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ Crescent Recipe Creations® refrigerated seamless dough sheet
1
round (8 oz) Brie cheese
1
egg, beaten

Steps

  • 1Heat oven to 350°F.
  • 2If using crescent rolls: Unroll dough; separate crosswise into 2 sections. Pat dough and firmly press perforations to seal, forming 2 squares. If using dough sheet: Unroll dough; cut crosswise into 2 rectangles. Pat dough to form 2 squares.
  • 3Place 1 square on ungreased cookie sheet. Place cheese on center of dough. With small cookie or canap√© cutter, cut 1 shape from each corner of remaining square; set cutouts aside.
  • 4Place remaining square on top of cheese round. Press dough evenly around cheese; fold bottom edges over top edges. Gently stretch dough evenly around cheese; press to seal completely. Brush with beaten egg. Top with cutouts; brush with additional beaten egg.
  • 5Bake 20 to 24 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes. Serve warm.
