Last Christmas I made " brie w/ fresh cranberries en croute." This year, I decided to try a different approach, and tried sweet and savory tastes along with the dough draped over the cheese. It was such a big hit last weekend, now I know what i'll be bringing to one of the parties during the holidays!! I love this with the french bread.
Heat oven to 400. In lg skillet, lightly sprayed w/ cooking spray, cook walnuts over medium heat, stirring, until lightly toasted. Remove from heat and let cool.
Spoon walnuts into a small bowl, set aside. Respray skillet and set over medium-low heat. Add apple, shallot and marjoram. Cook, stirring occasionally until all is softened. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.
Stir into bowl with apple mix the preserves, cranberries and walnuts. On lightly floured surface, place 1 roll pie crusts and roll out to 11". Place a lg piece of parchment paper on a cooking sheet and lightly spray paper w/ cooking spray. Place brie round on parchment paper, cut side up. Spoon apple mix on top of brie. drape dough over cheese, tucking edges in underneath. Brush top of dough w/ egg. Bake about 25 mins or until crust is golden. Serve w/ hearty crackers or french bread rounds.
