I always come home with an empty plate when I take this special appetizer to holiday parties. It looks fancy but is actually quite easy to make. —Carolyn DeKryger, Fremont, Michigan

"Looks great and I will be sure to try it.  I will take this opportunity to share my favorite baked brie.  It's a wing it recipe...Cover brie with butter and brown sugar.  Cover brie completely with tube of crescent rolls( keep rolls together and pat out to dit)...depending on size of brie will determine how many tubes.  Top crescent roll with more sugar and butter.  Bake at temp and time as directed on crescent rolls or until golden.  Always a hit at gatherings.
