1 sheet Pepperidge Farm frozen Puff Pastry
1 lb    Brie Cheese (round)
1 pkg   Boursin Cheese
1       egg
1 tsp   water

Beat the egg and water together in a small bowl.

Thaw pastry 20 minutes; on a floured surface roll to a 15-inch circle.

Preheat oven to 400F degrees.

Slice Brie in half horizontally. Spread Boursin cheese on one half.
Re-assemble Brie and place in the center of pastry.

Brush pastry edges with egg wash, and pull up sides to enclose Brie.
Place seam side down on ungreased baking sheet. If desired, decorate
the top with pastry scraps. Brush with egg wash.

Bake for 20 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes (at least) before serving.

Makes 12 servings.

        (They 'stuff' the Brie with 1/4 cup sliced, toasted almonds and 
         1/4 cup chopped parsley instead of Boursin)

* Boursin cheese is a spreadable garlic and herb cheese. Boursin Poivre
  contains a lot of black pepper for those who like pepper. Boursin is
  available in many grocery stores but can almost certainly be found in
  higher quality produce and specialty stores. If Boursin or Boursin Poivre 
  cannot be found, Alouette can be used as a substitute although it is not 
  as high quality as Boursin, in my opinion.
