Let's Scramble Some Eggs...

If you think you can't cook, think again. Cooking is all about being fearless. Acknowledge when something doesn't work, identify the problem, and try it again. That's what I do, and this is a showcase of the results!

Baked Brie

 This little snack has become Hazel's absolute FAVORITE.  I made it once as an appetizer for Thursday night dinner, and it has been requested every day since :)  Its classic, easy, and almost completely healthy!  And who doesn't love gooey cheese wrapped in a delightful crescent roll?

-round of Brie
-fruity jelly/spread (I use raspberry preserves)
-crescent rolls (like the Pillsbury one in the tube)
-nuts (optional)

-Unroll the crescent rolls but do NOT tear apart.  It actually work best if you pinch the seams together to make sure there are no holes.  Place on a baking sheet.
-Unwrap the round of brie, and cover one side with the jelly.
-Put the brie in the center of the crescent rolls.  Fold up the sides of the crescent rolls and seal in the brie. Make sure there are no holes or the brie will escape when you bake it!
-Turn the whole thing over so what was the bottom is now the top.  If you're using nuts, add them to the top of the brie now.
-Bake at 350 until the crescent roll starts to brown (follow directions on crescent roll container, but keep an eye on it--contrary to my mother's opinion, black is actually burnt).
-Let it cool for a couple minutes before serving otherwise the cheese will all run out.  Serve with crackers and slices of apple.
