Super simple. I accidentally grabbed the "buttery" crescent rolls and it just make it more delicious! I used some floss to remove some of brine and cut the round of brie is half horizontally. I put the bottom half on the crescent roll, put a huge glob of fig spread on the cheese, then capped it off with the other half of the cheese and more crescent roll. Be sure to press the creases together real well. One tip I learned was to bake it in a shallow round dish that you can serve the brie in. This way, if it starts to leak while baking, it's no big deal. Enjoy!

This has been a favorite for years. One big change is to add a couple of large tablespoons of pesto on top of the brie and then seal. It really makes a difference

I have been making this brie for the past year and each time everyone loves it! I have also put an apricot preserve on top of the brie and then covered with the crescents. You can also try cranberry chutney, walnuts cooked with fresh cranberries and some brown sugar, use your imagination! This can be a show stopper!
