Baked Brie

2 Puff Pastry Sheets
Jessi's Flaming Fruit Sauce in Orange-Cranberry, Blueberry-Ginger, Apricot or Mango-Pineapple flavors
2 medium whole Brie cheese rounds
1 egg
2 Tbs water


I'm going to do this one basically with pictures.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Thaw the puff pastry sheets for 15 or 20 minutes on the counter, just until they are soft enough to stretch a little.  I stretch until the brie can sit on the pastry and have about 3 or 4 inches of clearance around it, to fold up.  Beat the egg with 2 Tbs of water.  Brush on the pastry each time you fold the dough up to create a seal, and over the top to create a golden crust.  

Make sure you do not stretch the pastry too thin, or the sauce will leak out while cooking.  Get as fancy as you like cutting small decorations out of the pastry to place on top.  

Make sure you bake this on either a non-stick baking paper or a silicone mat.  The big trick with a baked brie is that once it is nice and golden brown, you have to let it cool back to room temperature again before slicing.  It takes about 35 to 45 minutes to get nice and golden brown.
