Brie in Pastry

Valentine's Day is coming up and here is a yummy recipe that would be lovely for you and your sweetie!! My hubby and I absolutely love brie!

~ Frozen puff pastry patty shells (from 2 2
10 1/2 oz., 300 g, package of 6), thawed
~ Small Brie cheese round (with rind)
~ Large egg, fork-beaten
~ Medium red apples, cut into thin wedges

Roll 1 pastry shell out on lightly floured surface to 5 1/2 to 6 inch (14 to 15 cm) circle.

Place cheese round in middle of pastry. Bring up sides, pleating dough around edge. Roll out second pastry shell. Cut circle to fit top, using Brie tin. Crimp and seal edges. Make decorative shapes from scraps of pastry. Place on top.

Brush pastry with egg. Place on greased baking sheet. Bake in 450°F (230°C) oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F (175°C). Bake for about 5 minutes until golden brown. Transfer to serving plate.

Place apple wedges around pastry. Serves 6.
