Everyone loves the melty goodness of my Baked Brie. Perfect for any party! I've been craving this for a while.

Recipe: Baked Brie

From the Capital Cooking Cookbook

1 large sheet of puff pastry dough
1 round or wedge of Brie cheese
Raspberry Jam or Cranberry Chutney
Brown sugar
1/4 cup of maple syrup
Sliced almonds 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a cookie sheet, lay out the puff pastry; put brie round or wedge on top. Spread jam on brie, and drizzle maple syrup and place a handful of brown sugar on top. Fold over dough and flip folds to the bottom. Brush top with butter and sprinkle the almonds on top. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with crackers and fruit.

Pairing: Moscato d'Asti D.O.C.G. 2016

This beautiful wine comes from Piedmont, Italy and retails for $17.99. It pairs perfectly with this cheese or dessert. Sip this refreshing wine at the end of any nice meal.
