Baked Brie

1 1 lb. wheel of Brie
1/2 pkg. Puff pastry sheets
1 egg
1/2 c. fig preserves (can substitute strawberry or any preserve)
1/4 c. toasted almonds, sliced
Assorted crackers
several bunches of red and green seedless grapes

Thaw puff pastry for 1/2 hour. Mix egg with water and put aside. Unfold pastry on lightly floured surface. Roll in 14" square. Cut off corners of pastry to make a circle.

Spread preserves in middle of pastry until an area about the size of the cheese is covered. Place cheese on top. Brush the pastry with egg mixture. Fold pastry over cheese and seal cheese inside. Invert cheese on to a cookie sheet. Brush with egg mixture.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 1 hour.
