This is an elegant twist to an already elegant dish. This baked brie combines the strong but coordinating flavors of brie cheese with pesto sauce and pine nuts. It has a sweet taste and can be eaten alone or served with crackers or baked French bread.
Original recipe makes 8 servings
1 (8 ounce) round Brie cheese
2 tablespoons pesto sauce
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- Cut Brie cheese horizontally in half, creating two equal rounds similar to a layered cake. Spread pesto sauce on the cut surface of 1 half; sprinkle pine nuts and brown sugar over pesto layer. Place the other Brie half on top of pesto mixture.
- Separate crescent rolls and cover entire Brie round with crescent roll dough, sealing all the gaps. Place covered Brie on a baking sheet.
- Bake in the preheated oven until Brie cheese is softened and crescent rolls are lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
