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!

I need to try this one again. Almost my brie leaked out into a baked puddle of cheese. I am sure if it stays inside this will be great! It still tasted good though

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!

Great recipe. If you're cooking for one or two, just use a small brie wedge and two crescent triangles. Serve with sliced apples and wine!

Easy, impressive and fabulous. I topped with rasberry preserves and pecans, and it was to die for!! Can't wait to try with pesto next... YUM

I too have been making this for years, using the crescent rolls in the can is key to it being easy and tasting like you spent all afternoon making it. Try adding stuff to it like,olives,pepper flakes,mushrooms, walnuts,tobasco, capers, smoked salmon,sun dried tomatoes, the list is endless. Great crowd pleaser

I top with brown sugar, cinnamon, a few pats of butter and dried cranberries. Great for parties. I've prepared up to 2 hours before baking.
