Recipe - Baked brie

Do you like Brie cheese?  Me, too!  This recipe, with only three ingredients, is one of my favorites.  It's gorgeous, tasty, and always a hit.

One round of brie cheese
One puff pastry sheet {found in the freezer section with pie crusts.  Make sure you get sheets - there are shells, too, and the boxes are similar.}

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and allow your puff pastry to thaw for twenty minutes or so. If desired, cut rind off of brie. This is a matter of preference.

I cut off all of the rind, but forgot to take a picture, in case anyone was confused and thought I only took off the sides.

Place brie in the center of the puff pastry and fold it over to seal.  I usually bake it with the seams down, but put them up this time to see what would happen.  Don't worry about an egg wash. 

Bake until golden brown, 25-35 minutes.

Place on a serving plate.  Serve with apples and/or crackers.  I have also used grapes.

Oops!  Should have put lemon juice on those apples!

Drizzle honey over the brie.  There's the sheen we were looking for!  With the honey there is no need for an egg wash.  Serve. 

This could be made as a savory appetizer.  There are lots of recipes out there.  You could also put chopped nuts and dried fruit inside before baking. 

Don't you love having really easy but beautiful things to serve?  The kind that make you look like a rockstar when you put in no effort?
