Directions:
Roll puff pastry into 12" square on a lightly floured counter. Using a pie plate, trim the pastry into a 9" circle. Brush the edges lightly with the beaten egg. Place the Brie in the center of the pastry circle. Wrap it in the pastry, using pleats, leaving a circular whole in the center. Brush the outside of the pastry with beaten egg and transfer to a parchment lined cookie sheet. Freeze for 20 minutes.

With the oven rack in the middle position, heat the oven to 425 F. Bake the cheese until the pastry is deep golden brown, approx 20-25 minutes.

Transfer to a wire rack. Spoon the preserves into the exposed center of the brie and cool for 30 minutes.

Serve with crackers.
