Debbie Oden, with the Paris Apartment Boutique and Bistro, shows us how to know out two big tasks for Halloween party: decorating and food.
1 Sheet of frozen puff pastry thawed
1 (8 to 14 ounce) package brie cheese, round
1/8 cup toasted almond, slices (optional)
1/4 cup of Cabernet Sauvignon jam or 1/4 cup of your favorite preserves (I often use apricot or hot pepper jam)
1 egg beaten
Preheat oven to 425.Cover cookie sheet with baking paper. Roll puff pastry out slightly. Place cheese wheel on top (leave rind on). Place preserves on top of cheese. Sprinkle almonds on top of preserves. Bundle Puff Pastry up and around the cheese. Brush with beaten egg. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cool for five minutes. Serve with your favorite crackers, apple slices or bread.
