Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degree C). Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan. Slice the wheel of Brie in half, horizontally, so that the halves are two, flatter wheels of Brie. Lay the puff pastry in the pie pan. Place half of the Brie (rind-side down) onto the pastry dough. Spread brown mustard as first layer. Sprinkle almonds evenly over the mustard. Distribute spinach as the next layer. Place the other half of the Brie (rind-side up) over the almonds. Bundle the pastry dough around the Brie. Trim away excess dough as necessary to reduce overlapping layers. Use dough trimmings for decorative leaf cutouts etc. (read full directions from package inserts). Brush egg yolk wash (1:1 with water) over surfaces of bundle to get golden brown.Bake for 15 to 20 minutes on lower rack. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
