sweet-n-savory baked brie in flaky crust

sherry monfils


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.
