Mummy-Wrapped Brie Recipe

Mummy-Wrapped Brie Recipe

Ingredients

1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed

1/4 cup apricot jam

1 round (16 ounces) Brie cheese

1 large egg

1 tablespoon water

Apple slices

2 dried cranberries or raisins

How to make it

Preheat oven to 400°. Unfold one sheet of puff pastry. On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry into a 14-in. square. Cut off corners to make a circle. Spread jam into a 4-1/2-in. circle in center of pastry. Place Brie on top; fold pastry over cheese, trimming as necessary, and pinch edges to seal. Beat egg and water; brush over pastry.

Place on an ungreased baking sheet, seam side down. Roll remaining pastry into a 14-in. square. Cut four 1-in. strips; cut strips in half crosswise. Wrap strips around Brie, trimming as necessary. Discard scraps. Bake 10 minutes; brush again with egg wash. Bake until golden brown, 10-15 minutes more. For eyes, cut two circles from apple slices; place on top of Brie. Top each circle with a dried cranberry. Serve warm with apple slices.
Yield: 10 servings.
