Valentine Valley, where Christmas lights are twinkling and true love burns brighter the second time around...


Please enjoy this delicious--and easy!--appetizer that my family loves to make. When you slice into the warm crust,
and the brie and raspberry preserves ooze out...yum!

Brie en Croute

Brie en Croute

1 sheet frozen puff pastry (package comes with 2 sheets)
1 small (8-ounce) wheel Brie
1/2 cup raspberry preserves
2 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Defrost 1 sheet of puff pastry for 20 minutes and unfold (place remaining sheet in freezer for another recipe). Gently roll pastry with a rolling pin to increase the size of the sheet 1 to 2 inches in each direction. Brush both sides of the sheet with beaten egg. Center the wheel of Brie on top of the pastry sheet and spread the preserves on the Brie. Bring all four corners of the sheet together above the Brie and twist slightly to form a "bundle." Tie gathered pastry with kitchen/cooking string (tie string in the form of a bow), arranging pastry until you are satisfied with the bundle shape. Place the bundle on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until pastry is golden brown. Serve warm with top-quality crackers.
