Happy Holidays! + TARDIS Crescent-Wrapped Brie

          Happy holidays and Merry Christmas, everyone! Thank you so much for your interest and support throughout 2013! Stay tuned for more fun recipes from, or inspired by, books, film, and games! I'll continue to bring you new posts every Monday, and some on random days too. There are just so many foods I want to make and share!

          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!
