Ingredients

Pastry

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3 ounces cream cheese, softened

Filling

1 (8-ounce) round Brie cheese

3 tablespoons cranberry orange sauce  

3 tablespoons chopped almonds, toasted

Topping

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 teaspoon water

Dippers

Apple or pear slices

Crackers

 

 *Substitute 3 tablespoons whole berry cranberry sauce.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine flour, butter and cream cheese in bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture leaves sides of bowl and forms a dough. 

  2. STEP 2

    Divide dough in half; wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  4. STEP 4

     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.

  5. STEP 5

    Beat egg with water in 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. 

  6. STEP 6

    Cut into small wedges. Serve with apple slices and crackers.

Tip #1

- Do not remove outer rind of Brie cheese. It is acceptable to eat and keeps the cheese contained inside pastry.

Tip #2

- To toast almonds, spread evenly in shallow pan. Bake at 350°F, stirring once, 4-6 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely.
