So when I was in New York City, my friends and I made a whole variety of food. We wanted a bunch of things that we could pick at, and since I knew we were having wine, my mind automatically went to cheese.
One of my most favorite and easiest cheese appetizers to make is a baked brie. I think everyone has their own way of making theirs, but I learned this recipe from one of my mom's friends who always makes a baked brie for the holidays.
1 wheel brie cheese
1 can reduced-fat crescent rolls
1 jar sugar-free apricot preserves
Preheat oven at 350
Unroll dough on a flat surface and cut in half.
Spread apricot preserves on both pieces of dough. Set one aside and place the other on a greased cookie sheet or in a greased pan.
Serve warm with crackers!
You can make this with any flavor preserves - I am interested in trying it with cranberries or pomegranate. Also, I have seen several recipes that use nuts as well. And I am definitely going to play around with cutting the dough, making designs, etc. to spice it up a little (well at least visually)
