  • 4-5 sheets of phyllo dough
  • 4 Tbl of apricot or raspberry preserves
  • 1 round of brie
  • melted butter to brush on top


Lay out the separated phyllo dough sheets so they overlap at right angles (an “x” on top of a “+”). Place the brie in the center with the fruit preserves on top. Begin folding in the edges of the dough to make a nice packet. Brush melted butter on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until the dough is golden. Serve with crackers or French bread.
