DIRECTIONS

  • Take out the pastry to defrost, this will be the most time consuming step.
  • Once it is defrosted, roll the dough out to more of a round shape.
  • I do this right on the cookie sheet that I am going to cook it on.
  • I also like to have a layer of parchment paper so that it won't stick later.
  • Preheat the oven to 400.
  • Once the dough is rolled out, spread the preserves lightly on the entire surface.
  • You may not use all the preserves, it should be just a thin coating.
  • Cut the rind off the top of the brie only.
  • Place the brie in the center of the pastry.
  • Use a knife to break the almonds.
  • In a pan heat them with the butter for 3-5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Layer the brown sugar on top of the brie.
  • Place the nuts on top and finish off with the cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Fold the pastry up around the brie, not pulling to make holes.
  • Squeeze the pastry together, using wet hands or extra preserves to help it stick.
  • Beat one egg with a little water to make an egg wash.
  • Brush the egg onto the pastry all over.
  • Place the brie in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Check on it at this time, some ovens need a few extra minutes to give it a nice golden color.
  • Serve with crackers or without.
  • I have used this as a stand in for cheese and crackers and as a side dish for beef stew, and both times every bite disapeared.
