To continue our week of special holiday treats, here’s a delicious one from Lisa Van De Graaff:

My mother creates the most amazing Christmas Eve spread of goodies. We have platter after platter of pretty little finger foods, decadent cheeses, and family favorites. For me, the platter I return to again and again is the one with the brie. One of the best things about this recipe is that the proportions don’t matter (really!)

Baked Brie Recipe

1 sheet puff pastry
1 wedge brie, rind removed, and cut into 1″ chunks
brown sugar
dried fruit (I like currants)
chopped nuts (I like pecans)

Let puff pastry thaw at room temperature for forty minutes, then unfold and place in baking dish. Distribute chunks of brie evenly down center of pastry. Sprinkle brown sugar, fruit, and nuts over cheese. Fold sides of pastry up and over cheese mixture and press lightly to seal. Cover with foil and bake at 375 for ten minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 15 minutes. Enjoy!
