This is a great recipe - similar to one that I have been making. The only difference with mine is that I place either (a very good) strawberry or strawberry rhubarb (or other fruit) preserves/jam on top (about 3+ tbs) of the brie before putting the placing inside crescent. [I've also reduced it [the preserves] with some balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan before spooning onto the brie too - this is my favorite]. A crowd pleaser for sure. [Even for non-brie fans]

not sure if the cheese I bought was not good, but I didn't like this at all.

I have made this recipe many times. It is very good and very easy. I have also used Gouda instead of Brie. Just take off the wax before using in the recipe.

I did make some additions to the recipe because my husband does not like brie that much but with the additions he loved it. I chopped up an apple and combined it with chopped pecans, brown sugar and melted butter, mixed them all together and put them on top of the brie before folding the crescent over the top. I baked it just like the recipe says and it turned out great. I will definately be making this again.

This is absolutely delicious! It was so easy to put together and the hardest part is not eating the entire thing!

I've tried this before and it comes out delicious with a beautiful presentation. My only change, I had leftover cranberry chutney I made over Thanksgiving. I added that to top of my brie before wrapping it. WOW! Outstanding balance in flavor... Happy Holidays!

Made these for a BREAST CANCER party after my sister in law finished treatments. I made TWO of these and placed them side by side on a nice serving platter!!! she was tickled and said only I would do such a thing and make it funny! BTW, spread jam/preserves of your choice on top and it is addictive! YUMMM!!!

Tweaker Alert....add a couple of tablespoons of chopped sun dried tomatoes in oil and/or some fresh pesto and some roasted garlic on top of the brie. Seal up tight in the crescent rolls. Cook a couple of hours before you need it. The brie melts when freshly cooked and if you cut into it straight out of the oven, the brie oozes like molten lava (HOT). If you let it sit for at least 1 hour - you have warm cheese that doesn't pour out when cut! Enjoy!
