"I have used this recipe for many years! It pairs so well with entertaining and a glass of wine or a beer! It tastes better as the evening goes on and only adding more golden delicious apple slices is ALL you have to do! Fantastic appetizer!!"
"Nothing beats this for presentation. Do take the time to arrange the scraps of dough into a bow or flower on top. Your guest will never know how easy it was to make!"
"This is my favorite way to prepare baked brie. I've tried several other recipe's but ultimately, I keep coming back to this one. I love the mild sweet flavor along with the savory cheese and puff pastry. I always receive great compliments when I prepare this for parties."
