Last night I made a "Doctor Who" themed Crescent-Wrapped Brie with a TARDIS on top (pictured below), and for Christmas today I'll be making Whoville Roast Beast (recipe forthcoming) and Peeta's Cheese Buns! I'll be making a few other foods too, of course, but they won't be fiction related (I do have plans for some of the leftovers though). For more about the crescent-wrapped brie see below.
"Doctor Who" TARDIS Crescent-Wrapped Brie
This is a very easy recipe, requiring only 4 ingredients, adapted from Pillsbury's website. Please refer to the original recipe here. I added apricot preserves inside by slicing the brie wheel in half through the middle (making two circles), placing one circle onto the prepared dough (on a floured surface), spooning about 1 Tbsp. or so of preserves on, & then placing the other brie half on top. I then continued following the recipe for putting on the dough. Make sure the dough on the sides isn't too thin or the hot cheese & preserves may spill out during baking. Leave out enough dough to make a TARDIS & little leaf shapes, plus 2 hearts & a couple of stars if you want. I used tiny cookie cutters for everything but the TARDIS which I cut out using a small spatula & a knife. I affixed all of the cut-outs with wetted fingers & then lightly brushed the whole thing with the beaten egg + water to make it thinner. Follow directions for baking & serve with fruit including sliced apples or pears. Makes a yummy appetizer or party snack!
