       Title: BRIE EN CROUTE
  Categories: Appetizers, Cheese
       Yield: 1 batch
 
      16 oz Brie wheel
       4 oz Mushrooms, shiitake
            Butter; for sauteing
     1/4 ts Tarragon
       2    Garlic clove
       2 oz Wine
     1/2 lb Filo
 
   Also, baked Brie is fabulous.  If you want to get fancy with the brie,
   sauté some mushrooms with tarragon, garlic and a bit of wine until the
   mixture is almost dry (the mushrooms should be sliced or chopped, by
   the by), take a wheel of brie, slice it in half, put the mushroom mix
   in the middle, and wrap it in phyllo or puff pastry (the frozen puff
   pastry works fine).  Put in the freezer for 20 minutes to firm
   everything up.
 
   At this point, it can be moved to the fridge and kept until needed.
   Bake it in a moderate oven until the puff pastry browns.  Let sit for
   15-20 minutes before cutting.
 
   You can also use puff pasty scraps to cut out little leaves and stuff
   to put on top of the whole thing for decoration.  This is best with
   the small wheels, about 5 inches in diameter.
