Ingredients

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.

    Oh this sounds good! This is certainly a step above just plain old brie and fig preserves! My daughter is a brie lover and will be pleased with this one.
