Everyone has done this, one way or another. The latest and bestest addition, we think, is the bacon fig jam that is sold in winery stores or high end foodie stores.
- 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
- 1 8 oz. round Brie or Camembert cheese
- 1 egg
- 2-3 tbsp bacon fig jam
Heat oven to 400 degrees. On a floured surface, unfold the pastry sheet.
Place the cheese round in the center, add the jam on top and carefully fold the pastry over, cutting off the excess. Brush the seam with egg wash to seal.
You can make additional decoration to place on top from the scraps.
Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet, turn it over (seam down) and brush with the beaten egg. Bake in the oven for approximately 20-25 minutes until a golden brown. Let stand for about 15 minutes.
Put on a pretty plate with a variety of crackers. Have the wine chilled and sparkling glasses at the ready. Invite a few of your best friends over and the conversation will be lively.
