    Heat oven to 400°F. Place pastry on lightly floured board or surface. Cut pastry with 3-inch leaf-shaped cookie cutter dipped in flour to prevent sticking to make about 24 cutouts. Place cheese on ungreased cookie sheet; arrange pastry leaves in circle around cheese. Remove cheese. Cover and refrigerate pastry wreath 5 to 10 minutes.

    Beat egg and milk with fork or wire whisk until well blended. Brush egg mixture on top of pastry wreath; sprinkle with chopped rosemary. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully remove pastry wreath from cookie sheet; place on serving platter.

    Bake cheese 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese is soft and partially melted. Place cheese in center of pastry wreath. Garnish with rosemary sprigs, currants and bay leaves.

Expert Tips

  • Be careful not to get the egg wash on the sides of the pastry cutouts, or you won't get as much puff in the pastry.
  • Make this puff pastry wreath up to 2 days before the party, and wrap tightly with plastic wrap.
  • Use bell- or star-shaped cookie cutter to cut pastry into 24 pieces, but do not make wreath; bake pastry cutouts as directed. Microwave Brie on Medium (50%) 2 to 3 minutes or just until soft and warm. Arrange puff pastry cutouts around cheese. Garnish with fresh thyme, raspberries and crab apples.
  • Place cheese and puff pastry wreath on slab of marble.
