This is SO EASY (but don't tell your friends - make them think you've been slaving over a hot stove all day, like in those Rice Krispie Treats commercials!)
Puff pastry (use the other half of the package you bought for last week's mini pies)
One round of Brie, either 1 pound or ½ pound, depending on how many people you’re serving
One egg beaten with one tablespoon water
Thaw the puff pastry at room temperature for 30 minutes. Unfold one of the pastry sheets, and place on a lightly floured surface. Cut off the corners to make a circle, and roll out until it’s about twice as big around as your cheese.
Sprinkle parsley in the center of your circle, and then lay your cheese on top of the parsley.
Fold the edges of the pastry into the center of the cheese, pressing to seal.
Turn the pastry/cheese bundle over and place on a cookie sheet lined with baking parchment. Brush with egg wash. If you wish, you can cut decorative shapes out of the remaining pastry and stick onto the round, and brush with the egg wash again.
Bake for 20 minutes at 400°, or until golden brown. Cut open the top, and serve with crackers.
Some of you may remember this recipe - I shared it during the Seekerville New Year's Bash. But it's just as good now as it was then!
And you don't have to have a party to enjoy this. Take it to a church dinner, or a brunch with friends.
Heck, make one for just you. Isn't there something you need to celebrate?
And before you go, I have another video for you. This guy makes me chuckle :)
