Mom pulled out this new recipe last weekend. It was a big hit with out family so I thought I’d share. Its a little twist to the standard Baked Brie appetizer.
1 can Pillsbury crescent rolls
1 round (we used wedge) Gouda cheese (we also removed the wax coating)
1 tablespoon raspberry preserves (we just spooned enough to cover cheese, maybe little more than one tablespoon)
1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds (we omitted)
1 egg, beaten (we omitted)
fresh raspberries and apple slices
Heat oven to 350. Unroll crescent rolls and press perforations to seal. Set cheese in middle of crescent on a cookie sheet. Original recipe calls to divide crescents in half placing cheese on middle of one half.
Spread preserves on top of cheese. Sprinkle with almonds. If divided crescent in half, cover cheese with second half and press dough evenly over tog edges to seal. If place cheese in middle (which we did), pull dough up and over cheese and press to make sure completely covered.
Can top with beaten egg and additional teaspoon of almonds if desired. Bake 20 to 24 mintues or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Serve warm with raspberries and apple slices. We also used crackers to scoop up the yummy goodness!
