Brie wrapped with Crescent
This is a very simple appetizer. If you like cheese, trust me this will hit the spot. If you haven't tasted Brie cheese ,pls try with a small piece. The cheese is really rich and has slight smoky flavour.The rind is edible and there's no need to remove it. It can be served or paired with any fruits.You can even cut the brie in half,layer it with craberries and then bake it.
Crescent dinner rolls - 1 can
Brie cheese - 1
Egg, beaten - 1 ( optional)
Heat oven to 350°F.
If using crescent rolls: Unroll 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. With small cookie, cut 1 shape from each corner of remaining square; set cutouts aside.
Place remaining square on top of cheese round. 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; brush with additional beaten egg.
Bake 20 to 24 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes. Serve warm with fruits and crackers.
