I’m not a chef by any stretch of the imagination, but I do have my rare moments of culinary genius. They almost always involve cheese, and this is one of them. I am going to introduce you to something so incredibly delicious it shouldn’t be allowed to exist on the same planet as treadmills. This baked brie came to me in a state of manic inspiration, and takes an already delicious treat to a whole new level. The worst part: it is easy as sin.
All you need are: Pillsbury crescent rolls, some brie, and brown sugar. I’m going to tell you how to make these in 20 minutes and you’re going to be so mad that you ever read this. I want to express my sincerest apologies for inventing something so delectable and dangerous. However, I regret nothing.
Step 1: roll out the crescent rolls into a thin, flat sheet. Try and get rid of the perforated lines so you have one big piece of dough.
Step 2: coat the dough in a liberal amount of brown sugar.
Step 3: slice the brie and place it evenly on the sheet of dough.
Step 4: roll up the dough as you would if you were making cinnamon rolls so that it ends up looking a little like it did fresh out of the packaging, except stuffed with sugary brie goodness. (It is worth noting that my brother called this step “The Brieto,” because it looks like a big burrito.)
Step 5: slice the roll into about 9 pieces and arrange them as you would cinnamon rolls on a well greased cookie sheet. (If you don’t grease the sheet excessively it makes a big mess and a lot of work to get them off.Please forgive me. I couldn’t help but share.
Step 6: sprinkle some more brown sugar on top of the rolls.
Step 7: Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350.
Please forgive me. I couldn’t help but share.
