Take a look at this crescent wreath recipe as it bakes, making sure the brie doesn't stick out of the filling.
For this recipe it is important that you have some considerations of the manipulation of puff pastry doughs. The first thing is that the colder the manipulation is much better, it is also important to know that the puff pastry cannot join and knead again if we make a wrong cut, because it would lose its layers and result in a very greasy mass without layers.
You can store brie crescent wreath in the refrigerator for 2 days.
Cut the bacon into small pieces and toast in a pan. Also cut the brie cheese into cubes.
Remove the puff pastry from the refrigerator and put on a clean, flat, dry surface. You can spread a little flour to manipulate the dough and prevent it from sticking. With a sharp knife cut the dough into triangles.
To make the roll, you should prepare a baking sheet with a waxed paper or cover with a silicone blanket. On the tray, place the dough triangles concentrically. The narrowest leg of the triangle should form the inner circle of the roll. You can place a round pot in the center and from there arrange the dough triangles to obtain a perfect roll.
On the edge of the circle, add the brie.
Add the bacon and jam.
Take the vertex of the triangle, and roll up on itself forming the ring. Collect the dough as best you can to prevent it from losing the filling.
Bake it at 300°F for 15 minutes. Brush the crescent wreath with the egg mixture. Bake again for another 10 to 5 minutes or until golden brown. Serve and enjoy!
