Baked Brie with Cherries
This is one of those recipes that I love – it looks complicated but it’s actually pretty easy and absolutely phenomenal! Trust me, you will love all the warm gooey deliciousness!
16 oz Brie wheel
Two canisters crescent dough sheets for baking
3/4 cup dried cherries or cranberries
6 T brown sugar
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 egg, whisked
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the Brie wheel in half horizontally and set aside. Mix the brown sugar, cherries, and nuts together in a bowl. Unroll one crescent canister and roll out a little with a rolling pin. Spoon about half of the cherry and nut mixture in the center of the crescent dough. (this will eventually be the top) Layer one half of the Brie wheel on top of mixture. Layer the remaining cherry and nut mixture on top of the Brie. Top with the remaining Brie half. Then, start folding the sides of the dough up towards the center if the Brie wheel. You should be able to pull the dough together so it seals in all the ingredients. If not, unroll the second croissant dough and cut a circle to cover the seams. When the Brie is sealed carefully flip over onto a parchment covered cookie sheet. Use the remaining dough from the second canister for decorating by cutting shapes with cookie cutters and then placing on top. Brush the entire top with egg. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes or until the croissant is brown and crusty. Then, lower to 325 degrees and bake for another 10-15 minutes. Serve with water crackers or apples. Enjoy!
