Bleeding Heart Brie Recipe

This impressive appetizer is simple to prepare and requires simple ingredients, too. The cherries add a new twist to baked Brie and provide a sweet contrast to the salty cheese and pastry.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:10 servings


  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 round (8 ounces) Brie cheese
  • 1/3 cup cherry preserves
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
