Warm baked Brie topped with cranberry sauce and toasted almonds is hidden in a soft, flaky cream cheese pastry. It's magically easy to make!
Combine flour, butter and cream cheese in large bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture leaves sides of bowl and forms a dough. Divide dough in half; wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate until firm (1 hour).
Heat oven to 400°F. Roll each half of dough on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut 8-inch circle from each half (save dough scraps for decoration). Place 1 circle onto ungreased baking sheet. Place Brie on center of pastry circle. Spread cranberry sauce over top of cheese; sprinkle with toasted almonds. Top with other pastry circle. Pinch edges of pastry to seal. Flute edges as desired. Decorate top with small pastry cut-outs.
Beat egg with water in small bowl; brush top and sides of pastry. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from baking sheet immediately. Let stand 30 minutes to allow cheese to set. Cut into small wedges. Serve with apple slices and crackers.

would love to try this....would love to have been able to.....kind of difficult without the recipe for cranberry orange sauce.
Have been making this recipe since I received my first Land O'Lakes recipe book back in 1994. Always my "go to" appetizer. So easy and quick to make. Make it without the cranberry sauce and almonds though. Like to keep it simple and not over power the flavor of the cheese and apple/pear slices I serve this with.
This recipe is a holiday crowd pleaser in our house! It's quick and easy and VERY tasty.
I made this for a baby shower and everyone loved it! They thought the pastry was a puff pastry!
Delicious & easy to make. I make this every year during the holidays & my family eats it right up. Important to serve warm.
