Brie Appetizer:  Buy a brie round, and slice off the top rind layer.  Place a puff pastry dough sheet under the wheel with the flat top facing up.  Spoon jam generously onto the top.  Wrap the whole wheel (including jam) with the dough and seal.  Cut a few slits in the top.  Brush the dough with an egg wash if desired.  Bake at 350 for 10-15 min. or until golden brown.
