How to make it
- Combine flour, butter and cream cheese in large bowl.
- Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture leaves sides of bowl and forms a dough.
- Divide dough in half; wrap in plastic food wrap.
- Refrigerate until firm (1 hour).
- Heat oven to 400F.
- Roll each half of dough on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness.
- Cut 8-inch circle from each half (save dough scraps for decoration). Place 1 circle onto ungreased baking sheet.
- Place Brie on center of pastry circle.
- Spread cranberry sauce over top of cheese; sprinkle with toasted almonds.
- Top with other pastry circle.
- Pinch edges of pastry to seal.
- Flute edges as desired
- . Decorate top with small pastry cut-outs.
- Beat egg with water in small bowl; brush top and sides of pastry. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
- Remove from baking sheet immediately.
- Let stand 30 minutes to allow cheese to set.
- Cut into small wedges. Serve with apple slices and crackers.
- TIP: Do not remove outer rind of the Brie cheese. It is acceptable to eat and keeps the cheese contained inside pastry.
