A great idea with Jam.....

Doesn't this look good?  It looks rather fancy doesn't it?  Well, wow you family or friends with this wonderful addition to your brunch menu.  I made this with Crescent rolls, and it couldn't have been easier.  It looks like you have worked yourself to death in the kitchen to the unaware guest.

In keeping with our focus on Jam and is a wonderful entree that you can easily prepare.

Baked Brie Recipe  (  Can be prepared in 30 minutes or less.

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)

Raspberry Jam, or other sweet jam

Brown sugar

1/4 cup of maple syrup


1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2 On a stick-free cookie sheet, lay out the puff pastry or the crescent rolls flat; put brie round or wedge on top.

3 Spread jam on brie, fold dough over top, cutting off excess dough. Drizzle maple syrup and place a handful of brown sugar on top.

4 Bake at 350º for 25-30 minutes, pastry should be golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Serve with crackers and apple slices.

This would certainly be a "splurge".  The Pastry dough can be purchased frozen, and the Jam would be on your shelf.  Brie has a short shelf life (sometimes days), so you could slip out and get your Brie just for this 'splurge'.   Who says you can't supplement your food storage with fun things?
