Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 can (11 ounces) Pillsbury breadsticks
1 wheel (8 ounces) Brie
1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling
1 tablespoon Amaretto
1/2 teaspoon cardamon
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds
1 loaf french bread or assorted crackers

Instructions

Separate 3 breadsticks and make a circle the size of the Brie. Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Remove Brie from wrapper and cut in half horizontally. Place bottom half on bread circle. In medium bowl, combine pie filling, Amaretto, cardamon, lemon zest and almonds. Place 1/3 filling on Brie circle. Top with remaining Brie half. Top with another 1/3 filling. Roll remaining breadsticks lengths long enough to cover the Brie stack. Lattice the bread sticks over Brie and seal edges with a fork. Bake in preheated oven at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate and garnish with remaining filling. Serve with bread slices or crackers.
