Baked Brie



This is my new favorite "fancy" appetizer. It's super easy, looks impressive, and tastes wickedly delicious. There's really no recipe. Just buy a wheel of double cream brie, wrap it in 4-5 layers of phyllo (also store bought), bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes until the phyllo turns golden brown. Serve with flatbreads or crackers with a fruit jam/jelly on the side. Yum-yum.

For our Christmas dinner, we started with a plate of arugula salad with pears and walnuts plus the baked brie with lingonberry preserves (from Ikea...sshhh, don't tell anyone). This was followed by a roast served with rosemary potatoes and asparagus and dessert was cheesecake with blueberries.

That looks yummy! Another simple Brie recipe is to simply wrap it in crescent roll dough. I hae the recipe here:

You guys get fancy for Christmas dinner! We go much simpler, which I appreciate because my children would suffer from starvation. They are horribly picky, so half of the things I would love to cook...I don't. Sigh. Love my kids!
