Only Easy: Misty’s Cutesy Baked Brie
By Misty I.
When you need an appetizer to take to a party or potluck try making this easy dish. Its official name is brie en croute but that is just a fancy name for a piece of cheese wrapped in not-so-fancy-store-bought crescent dough.
I sometimes like to take an extra few minutes to make phrases out of the remaining dough like I did for a small wine party I attended recently. If you are interested in these cut-outs they are actually for bento-making and come in handy for when you want to make kawaii nonsense like me! If you are reading this and have decided that you need mini letter cutouts in your life and you have a few bucks you can buy them here
Misty’s Cutesy Bake Brie
1 wheel of brie (8 oz. or Costco sized, this recipe can accommodate both)
1 can of Pillsbury Original Crescent Dough Biscuits
1 egg, beaten
For Serving: (I usually use apples, but bartlett pear and crackers are good too)
1 Envy apple, cored and sliced thin
1 Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced thin
- Heat oven to 350°F.
- Unroll crescent roll dough; separate crosswise into 2 sections. Pat dough and firmly press perforations to seal, forming 2 squares.
- Place 1 square on ungreased cookie sheet. Place cheese on center of dough.
- Place remaining square on top of cheese round (if using the 8 oz. brie, I sometimes can get away with using just one sheet and roll the other sheet into crescents and bake it for later) Press dough evenly around cheese; fold bottom edges over top edges. Gently stretch dough evenly around cheese; press to seal completely. Brush with beaten egg. Top with cutouts(if using); brush with additional beaten egg.
- Bake 20 to 24 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes. Serve warm.
- Arrange on a platter with, apples, pears and/or crackers.
That’s it! Only Easy!
