Brie en Croute
Brie baked in puffed pastry…basically, a buttery cheese wrapped in a buttery crust. How can that not be delicious? In this version, I wanted to bring in the flavors of cherry and almonds. Creamy brie cheese is covered in cherry preserves, toasted almonds, and brown sugar, and then baked in a buttery, flaky crust, a bit of sweet, nutty goodness just waiting to be unwrapped.
