Foodie Friday

Happy Friday and Happy day before New Year's Eve!!  In honor of this party day, I have a great recipe that I tried out this Christmas that is a great appetizer for your NYE party.  Its Brie en Croute...fancy name for Brie in a puff pastry.  I love brie, I love pastry and I love this appetizer.  Its creamy and delicious so try it out and let me know how much you love it!

Holiday Brie en Croute
(A Campbells Kitchen recipe)
Servings: 12    Prep Time: 15min  Cook Time: 20min    Stand: 1hr   Thaw: 45min   Difficulty: Moderate
·         1 egg                                     •1/3c dried cranberries
·         1 tablespoon water              • ¼ c toasted sliced almonds
·         All-purpose flour                  •1 (13-16oz) Brie cheese round (I used an 8oz block and left the rind on, tasted great to me, the larger block will just feed more people)
·         ½ of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed
·         ½ cup apricot preserves or seedless raspberry jam
Heat the oven to 400°F. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.
Sprinkle the flour on the work surface.  Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 14-inch square. Spread the preserves on the pastry to within 2 inches of the edge. Sprinkle with the cranberries and almonds. Place the cheese in the center of the pastry. Fold the pastry up over the cheese to cover. Trim the excess pastry and press to seal. Brush the seam with the egg mixture. Place seam-side down onto a baking sheet. Decorate with the pastry scraps, if desired. Brush with the egg mixture.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Let stand for 45 minutes. Serve with crackers.
**I dont do the fancy top, it tastes the same with or without it :) **
