    Baked Brie
    wrap a wheel of Brie cheese in puff pastry.
    bakeit in a preheated oven at 325 until puff pastry is browned
    pull it out, break open pastry to nice melted chees and have with veggies, apple slices, crackers, etc.

    For a quick "don't have any puff pastry" moment.......wrap Brie in aluminum foil. Bake til melted and enjoy(about 20 minuted).

    or a really easy substiture for puff pastry is Pillsbury cresecnt rolls. Unroll the dough, press lightly at the seams, wrap brie. Brush with egg wash if desired. Bake and enjoy!

    Baked Shrimp Toasts

    (Makes 32 hors d'oeuvres)

    4 tsp minced garlic
    1 Tbl minced peeled fresh ginger
    1 Tbl vegetable oil
    1 Tbl mirin
    2 tsp soy sauce
    1/2 tsp salt
    3/4 lb medium shrimp in shell (31 - 35 per lb), peeled, deveined, and cut into
    1/2 inch pieces
    3 Tbl chopped fresh cilantro
    1 (9 by 4 inch) white Pullman loaf, unsliced

    Cook garlic and ginger in oil in an 8 - 9 inch heavy skillet over moderate heat, stirring, until softened and fragrant, about 1 minute. Add mirin, soy sauce, and salt and simmer, stirring, 15 seconds. Transfer marinade to bowl and cool to room temp.

    Add shrimp and cilantro, tossing to coat well, and marinate covered and chilled, 1 hour.

    Put oven rack in upper third of oven and preheat to 350 deg.

    Turn bread loaf on its side and evenly cut crust from bottom of loaf using a long serrated knife, discarding crust, then cut a 3/8 inch thick slice from botton amd trim crust from sides of slice. Put slice on a baking sheet (reserve rest of loaf for another use) and bake, turning over once, until dry by not colored, 8 minutes total. Immediately increase oven temp to 475 deg.

    Spread top of hot toast with all the shrimp mixture, packing to down to thick even layer and covering surface entirely. Make sure oven temp has hit 475, then bake shrimp toast until topping is cooked through, 12 - 15 minutes. Transfer with a large flat spatula to a rack to cool 5 minutes, then transfer to cutting board.

    Halve shrimp toast crosswise with a very sharp knife, then cut each half lengthwise into fourths, making 8 strips total. Cut each strip into 4 pieces. Serve toasts warm or at room temperature (they're better hot).

    Definitely, I'll use the crescent rolls occasionally, altho puff pastry is pretty widely available nowadays. Pepperidge Farms has a good one and it's in the freezer section of the supermarket.
