1 large sheet of puff pastry dough or 1 tube of refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 round or wedge of Brie cheese (do not remove rind)
2 Tbsp raspberry jam, or other sweet jam
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup of maple syrup

Method of Preparation:
– Preheat oven to 350°F.

– Slice the top off the brie: If you want, start with chilled brie and use a sharp knife to carefully cut off the thin top rind of the cheese. This may help the crust stay with the cheese when served. *The rind is edible so you don’t have to do this step if you don’t want to.

– On a lined baking sheet, lay out the puff pastry or the crescent rolls flat. Place the brie round or wedge on top of the puff pastry.

– Spread jam on brie, fold dough over top, cutting off excess dough. Drizzle maple syrup and sprinkle brown sugar on top.

– Bake: Bake at 350ºF for 30 minutes, pastry should be golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
To Plate:
Serve with crackers or apple slices.
Serves: 6-8
