This recipe is a hit at any party !! - I made this with chopped walnuts and and ez roll out pie crust and it was delicious -- everyone gobbled it up !!

This is a great, elegant classic recipe. Use a Silpat if you have one to prevent sticking. You can also make this with finely chopped walnuts instead of almonds. I usually cut the Brie in half horizontally and add the fillings in between but the way the recipe is written is also fine.

I had a special occasion which I used homemade puff pastry (#16834) and baked individual little sides. Fantastic! Great 'manly-man' addition to a champagne toast :)
