I made this appetizer last night for a family gathering. I’ve made it before, and each time, everyone raves about it and thinks it’s fancy. And that’s my goal – fancy.
1 Frozen Pepperidge Farm puff pastry sheet, thawed
1 Round of brie cheese
Preserves (can be apricot, peach, or if you want to be really fancy, something exotic like balsamic sweet onion preserves, which I get at the local gourmet shop.)
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Flatten the puff pastry shell on a baking sheet and pinch seams together. Place brie on puff pastry, top with some spoonfuls of preserves (maybe 1/4 cup?). Fold the pastry sheet over the preserves-topped brie so it’s sealed. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes or until pastry is brown. Serve with Townhouse crackers (you could use other crackers too, but the buttery taste of the Townhouse crackers goes well with it.) Get a few sharp knives so people can dig in.
Your guests will rave about it.
