Reviews for Brie Puff Pastry
"excellent! this was easy to make and looks beautiful. took it to a pot luck and everyone raved about it! this is a keeper"
"Where do I buy these star-shaped crackers?"
"I make this for parties but use raspberry Jam and add about an extra Tablespoon EACH of Jam first then the crumbles, then slivered almonds to the top of the pastry- This makes it a true show stopper!!!"
"This a showstopper on Christmas eve. Much nicer than just a plate of cheese slices. And it is so easy."
