Strawberry Jam & Brie Bundle

This recipe is so amazingly easy and delicious. After being invited to a Valentines Day Potluck, I knew my Strawberry Jam & Brie Bundle was just the dish for the occasion. It has this amazingly sweet and salty combo that is undeniably addictive. And it’s sooo easy because it’s served with crackers on the side like a dip.

1. Roll out the  crescent dough sheet onto parchment lined cookie sheet. It should be about a 12×8 inch rectangle

2. Trim the dough so that its a 10×8-inch rectangle. Save the excess for decoration later.

3. Spread 1/4 cup of jam in the center of dough.

4. Place the brie on top.  (I like to cut the rind off because it can be a little too pungent, but you can leave it on if you want)

5. Spread remaining 1/4 cup of jam on top of brie, sprinkle almonds on top of jam (this just adds a little crunch)

6. Start folding the dough on top of brie to completely in-case it. Then flip the bundle over so the seams are face the parchment.

7. With a cookie cutter (I used a heart for Valentines Day), I cut shapes out of the excess dough I had set aside and placed them on top of the bundle.
8. Bake for 20-25 minutes until gold and brown

Sooo, I was in such a hurry to get to the potluck party that I complete forgot to take a final shot of the bundle out of the oven.  So here is a photo (courtesy of Pillsbury) that looks just like it (I used hearts instead of the owl).  This recipe is so simple that it will come out right every time!
