How To Make peppery brie en croute

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • 2
    Work crescent dough into thin circle large enough to completely wrap brie.
  • 3
    Place cheese in center of the dough circle.
  • 4
    Prick the top of the cheese several times with a fork and slowly pour 1 tablespoon of tobasco over the top of the cheese. Let it stand briefly so the cheese absorbs the sauce.
  • 5
    Add remaining tablespoon of tobasco, pricking cheese several more times with a fork. Some sauce will run over the side of the cheese, don't worry about it.
  • 6
    Bring edges of dough over the top of the cheese, working it together to completely cover the cheese.
  • 7
    Brush edges with beaten egg and seal.
  • 8
    Bake about 10 minutes. Be careful not to over bake as the cheese will run. Serve immediately with crackers.
