Every year we head over to my Sister-in-law’s house for Christmas Eve festivities bearing gifts of foods and drink. Most years I keep it fairly simple because we have to transport everything an hour and a half away. This year thanks to Life Made Delicious and Three Steps to Wow whatever I bring is sure to be the hit of the party. Goodbye stress and hello simply enjoying time with friends and family.
One of my favorite easy recipes for entertaining especially at Christmas is baked Brie. I have such a weakness for the warm gooey cheesiness of it. Usually I just warm it in the oven then serve one a platter with crusty bread and crackers. This year I am going to try something new thanks to Life Made Delicious. Here is how you can take ordinary baked Brie to WOW in 3 steps.
Pilsbury Cresent Wrapped Brie
– 1 pkg Pillsbury Crescents
– 1 round piece of Brie
– 1 egg
Step 1 – Preheat your oven to 350°F and while it’s warming up open the Pillsbury crescents and unroll separating into 2 pieces making sure to press the perforations together so you have two squares.
Step 2 – Place one of the squares on an ungreased cookie sheet, then place Brie in the center. Place second square of dough on top of brie and press the 2 sheets together forming a complete seal. Brush with beaten egg (I skip this since DS is allergic)
Step 3 – Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until dark golden brown. Let cool 15 minutes before serving alongside your favorite chutney, fruit preserves, salsa and/or honey roasted almonds.
Now I am hungry. I would love to know what your favorite holiday dish is!
If you are looking for a way to add a little holiday wow to your decor take a large clear vase, add in some colorful ornaments, tie a ribbon around the top, add some garland or pine branches and you have a great centerpiece or accent to your buffet!
