I use apricot jam, top with sliced almonds and wrap in crescent roll pastry...bake for 20 mins. Easy and delicious and I give it 5 starts

I felt the flavor was overpowered by the brandy. I won't make it again.

Well ... I'm 'old' and I just cut to the chase with this sort of thing (and it's damned good!). Purchase frozen pie crusts, defrost, insert Brie/jam and what ever floats your boat, and into the oven.Can't remember there being any 'left overs.'fae
