Baked Brie

Friday nights is a fun low key night to celebrate the end of a new week and also the beginning of the weekend.  With the kids out of the house, there's less of a need to always create a big meal, so sometimes Fridays are a wine and cheese and crackers night.

Brie is a wonderful soft cheese and we've seen a few recipes for baked brie, so we decided to try one.  It's relatively simple.  I would recommend this more as an appetizer rather than a meal.

Ingredients:

1 round or wedge of brie cheese
1/4 cup jam - whatever flavor you enjoy
1 package of crescent rolls

Heat oven to 350 degrees

Optional step  - scrape part of the the brie crust off the cheese
Open pack of crescent rolls and unroll dough in one large rectangle
Spread jam on the dough
Place brie in the center of the rectangle and fold dough around brie 
Bake covered brie at 350 for 20 minutes or until dough starts to turn light brown


Scraping off some of the brie rind


Spredding the jam on the crescent rolls (I had some home made mixed berry jalepeno jam for this project.




Place the Brie in the center of the crescent rolls

Fold the dough around the cheese.



Cooked appetizer...spread on cracker or eat as is.  Cook's note : While we picked a wedge to make this appetizer, we Tim and I both thought that a round of brie would cook more evenly.
