Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! As a gift to my parents for the holidays, we made them a three course meal, which started off with this amazingly simple but remarkably delicious appetizer of baked brie from The only change I made was to top it with honey instead of syrup and add some sliced almonds. This was delicious!

Baked Brie
from (
Serves 6

1 round of brie cheese
1 can of crescent roll dough
2 TBS of raspberry jam (or jam of your choice)
1-2 TBS honey
1 TSP sliced almonds

1) Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
2) On a non-stick cookie sheet, roll out crescent dough without separating into triangles (pinching gaps together). Place brie in center of dough.
3) Spread jam on top of brie. Fold up edges of dough to cover the cheese. Drizzle the honey on top and sprinkle on almonds.
4) Bake for 20-25 minutes or until pastry dough is golden brown and the cheese has begun to ooze. Serve with slices of french bread, crackers, or apples.
