Here is a lovely way to serve Brie cheese.  Convenient crescent rolls from the refrigerated case at your favorite grocery store form and attractive and delicious casing for this mouth-watering cheese.  Look for small rounds of Brie near the Deli departments of most grocery stores.

2 (4 and 1/4-ounce) Brie cheese rounds
1 egg, beaten
Sliced almonds or chopped pistachio nuts
Assorted fresh fruit, like apples and pears

1. Divide dough into two rectangles and place on parchment-lined or greased cook 8x5-inch pieces.

2. Place a Brie round in the middle of each rectangle. Bring up dough around cheese so it is completely enclosed. Place seam side down.
