WIBW 13 News – Live Morning Segment with Dave and Amanda, December 29, 2010
One of my favorite holiday party recipes using Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets from the Hy-Vee Freezer Section. Keep a box of puff pastry sheets in your home freezer for creating quick desserts and easy savory dishes. My boys love it when I make Chicken Pot Pie with puff pastry shells and I can have these on the table in no time!
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 wheel of brie, 13 oz.
1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds
1/3 cup apricot preserves
1/8 tsp. red pepper flakes
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place parchment paper onto baking sheet. On a lightly flour surface, roll out puff pastry sheet, just slightly. Spread apricot preserves in a circle, approx. the size of your wheel of brie, in the center of puff pastry sheet; sprinkle preserves with red pepper flakes, then toasted almonds. Unwrap wheel of bire, then place on top of almonds. Using a paring knife, cut all 4 corners from puff pastry sheet, rounding it slightly. Gently pull puff pastry up around brie wheel, then invert onto prepared baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, for approx. 20-25 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving. Serve with your favorite crackers – delicious with hearty breads, too.
