Baked Brie Heaven

Oh Paula Deen! That is all I have to say! She has done it again!

I went in search for a yummy baked brie recipe for one of the Christmas parties we had and I found just what I was looking for! Brie is one of my favorite cheeses and it only gets tastier when it is melted between some flaky puff pastry with sweet raspberry jam and toasted pecans!

First melt a tablespoon of butter in a sauce pan and then add 1/2 cup of chopped pecans or walnuts. Add 1/8 teaspoon of the cinnamon and stir over the heat until the butter browns and the nuts are toasted.

Then roll out the pastry dough so that it is large enough to wrap around the brie and toppings. Her recipe is for an 8 oz. wheel of brie, but I doubled it and used a 1 lb. wheel. The more the better!

Whipping up the eggs a bit...

Then I got the brie ready by topping it with the nuts and the jam.

Then washing the egg on both sides of the puff pastry for that golden crispy layer!

Wrapping up all the goodness!

The baked beauty! This is such a decadent treat! Best served with some chilled white wine or some of my
sassy spicy cider! ;)

Cheers to decadent brie heaven!
