Appetizer: Baked Brie in Pastry with Green Apples

This is one of those recipes that you can whip up in mere minutes when you have a spur of the moment get-together.  Plus, it's incredibly delicious.  I mean, who can say no to melted brie??

Brandi has made this delicious appetizer for us a few times when we've been over.  I made it earlier this summer when guests were over.  In fact, I had bought some more brie to make another one, just before going dairy-free.  Said brie happens to still be sitting in my fridge, all lonely, with no other dairy products to keep it company. 

Here's what you need:

1 package Pillsbury crescent rolls
1 piece of brie cheese (I used a 300g round from Costco
4-5 Granny Smith apples, cut into wedges

1.  Unroll the crescent rolls onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.

2.  Place the brie on the dough.

Seem simple enough yet?

3.  Wrap the dough around the brie, making more effort than I did to make it look beautiful ;)

4.  Bake in a 350 degree Farenheit oven for approximately 30 minutes, or until pastry is browned.

5.  In the meantime, slice your green apples into wedges, sprinkling with a bit of lemon juice if you are not going to serve them immediately (to prevent browning).

6.  Serve hot, immediately after taking out of oven.  Serve a slice of the dough-wrapped brie on top of a piece of apple.

Difficulty level: easy
