Whenever I think of potluck with friends, it always brings such warm thoughts to mind. Especially when you have great company and food. When Linda decided to come over one Friday night, we decided to throw some yummy appetizers together and enjoyed them over a nice glass of wine. She brought over her pumpkin whoopie pies and crackers and I threw together a 7-layer taco dip and this baked brie below.




1 Formaggio Betta Brie Package
1 sheet of Pepperidge Farm’s pastry sheets
1 egg


Spray baking pan and set aside. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice the brie in half and place one puff pastry sheet on pan. Lay bottom half of brie on puff pastry, add cranberry, honey and almond filling and add top of brie to sandwich. Then fold puff pastry over top of brie making sure all sides are pressed closed so no filling will ooze out. Brush egg over top of pastry and bake in oven for 20 mins, flip the brie, lower the oven temp to 325 degrees and bake for another 20 minutes. Now you are ready to serve crackers. This easy recipe is perfect for any potluck gathering.

I’ve always been meaning to add red wine to my diet for the antioxidants, but I can’t really stand any type of alcohol taste. Until this wine came along. You can find this at a fine wine store and it’s dark chocolate-flavored red wine and it’s as yummy as it sounds.

Bon Appetit!
