Crescent-Wrapped Brie aka Redneck Brie

My neighbor's friend gave me this recipe. He called it Redneck Brie, because it wasn't all fancy using homemade or even Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry. Then I found it on the Pillsbury website. I like Redneck Brie as the title, better than Crescent-wrapped Brie. (The Star Wars Characters don't come out after having been baked).

Crescent-Wrapped Brie aka Redneck Brie

Geeky Redneck Brie
Baked brie is always a hit at parties, and the easiest -- and most delicious -- way to serve it is this classic Crescent-Wrapped Brie recipe.

Prep Time: 20 Min
Total Time: 1 Hr
Makes: 12 servings

1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations® refrigerated seamless dough sheet
1 round (8 oz) Brie cheese
1 egg, beaten

Heat oven to 350°F.
If using crescent rolls: Unroll dough; separate crosswise into 2 sections. Pat dough and firmly press perforations to seal, forming 2 squares. If using dough sheet: Unroll dough; cut crosswise into 2 rectangles. Pat dough to form 2 squares.

Place 1 square on ungreased cookie sheet. Place cheese on center of dough. With small cookie or canapé cutter, cut 1 shape from each corner of remaining square; set cutouts aside.

Place remaining square on top of cheese round. Press dough evenly around cheese; fold bottom edges over top edges. Gently stretch dough evenly around cheese; press to seal completely. Brush with beaten egg. Top with cutouts; brush with additional beaten egg.

Bake 20 to 24 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes. Serve warm.
