So tonight is my second last night with my husband. He's leaving the country for several months and I have been trying to make every dinner special. He is going to miss our fine Canadian foods.

Tonight I made Brie En Croute. I think I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves.

Brie En Croute

Serves: 8

    1 sheet frozen puff pastry, pre-packaged
    1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    1/2 cup walnuts
    1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 (8-ounce) wheel Brie
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1 egg, beaten
    Crackers, for serving


Preheat oven to 375°F.

Defrost puff pastry for approximately 15 to 20 minutes and unfold.

In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Saute the walnuts in the butter until golden brown, approximately 5 minutes. Add the cinnamon and stir until walnuts are coated well. Place the walnut mixture on top of the Brie and sprinkle the brown sugar over the mixture.

Lay the puff pastry out on a flat surface. Place the brie in the center of the pastry. Gather up the edges of the brie, pressing around the brie and gather at the top. Gently squeeze together the excess dough and tie together with a piece of kitchen twine.

Brush the beaten egg over top and side of Brie. Place Brie on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes until pastry is golden brown.

Serve with crackers.

To give a special look, cut extra pastry into heart or flower shapes and bake until golden.

Brie is a soft cows' milk cheese with a rind on it. The inside turns to heavenly melted goo when you bake it. It is wrapped in puff pastry and topped with sweetened nuts. You want to eat this with a good quality cracker. I usually go for the whole grain kind.
