I've been making this every Christmas for years and my husband LOVES it!! So easy--I put the dough ingredients into my food processor and process until it forms a ball. What could be easier? And it looks so pretty (and hard to do), too!! Wonderful recipe!

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.

Beautiful presentation! I had to bake it an additional eight minutes to get a golden brown surface (but I baked it on a cute red oven-proof plate to serve it without moving it). Delicious!
