Creamy and rich Brie cheese is wrapped in puff pastry and baked with almonds, for an elegant and easy holiday appetizer.



Thaw puff pastry at room temperature for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400° F.

Melt butter in a small pan over medium heat and sauté nuts until golden, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

Unfold pastry on a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 14-inch square; cut off corners to make a circle. Place Brie in the center of pastry and sprinkle with nuts and parsley.

Fold 2 opposite sides over cheese. Trim 2 remaining sides to 2 inches from the edge of the cheese then fold these 2 sides on to the round. Press edges to seal and place seam-side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Decorate top with pastry scraps, if desired. Mix together egg and water in a small bowl and brush entire surface with egg mixture.

Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Cool for 1 hour before serving.
