This is my go-to appetizer when we host a party!
It’s easy, delicious, and looks pretty dang impressive. If you’re just starting your cooking journey, or you’re a seasoned veteran (see what I did there) 😉 You and your guests will love this! Or just make it for yourself and eat the whole thing. Up to you.
You can lighten this up to make it more health-conscious, and I’ve added those lighter ingredients throughout the post.
1. First, gather your ingredients! You only need a few items: Pillsbury Crescents (here I used the butter flavor, but you can lighten it up by using their 90 calorie version), Brie (I used Président, it was the cheapest one at Target! They do make a light version, as well), Jam (I used seedless blackberry jam because it’s my favorite, but you can also lighten this up with sugar-free!), and an egg.
2. Next, pinch your dough together. Because the crescents come perforated, you’ll want to pinch the dough together to make it all one sheet.
3. Place your brie in the middle of the dough.
4. Next, top the brie with jam! I used a spoonful. Just use enough to cover the top of the wheel as you don’t want it to dampen the dough and cause too many holes.
5. Pull the ends of the dough up to wrap around the brie. You can secure the dough by pinching it together.
6. Crack your egg in a dish, whisk, then add a little water. Use this egg wash to paint onto the outside of the dough. This will make it nice and golden brown.
7. Bake at 355ºF for roughly 20 min. You should check on it at 20 min and decide if it’s ready to come out – I’ve tried to make this at other peoples’ houses where I didn’t know their oven, and my brie melted into a sheet on the pan. (We still ate it, it was still delicious, but it’s much less impressive and beautiful!).
8. Serve with crackers (I love Ritz!) and fruit.
This is perfect for the holidays! Whether you’re hosting Friendsgiving, an ugly sweater party or New Years Eve, everyone will love this because it’s cheese, duh! Interested in more recipes? Check out these Wonton Mozzarella Sticks!
