Phyllo-Wrapped Brie


8 sheets commercial frozen phyllo pastry, thawed
Butter-flavoured cooking spray
1 x 15 ounce round herbed brie cheese
Fresh herbs
Kitchen string


Serves: 12


Spray 1 sheet of phyllo with cooking spray, keeping remaining pastry covered with a slightly damp towel to prevent it from drying out. Place brie in centre of sheet; wrap phyllo around brie. Repeat procedure 3 times, inverting brie each time; set aside.

Layer remaining 4 sheets of phyllo pastry, spraying each with cooking spray; place wrapped brie in centre. Bring corners of phyllo to centre of brie to cover, gently gathering and pressing together in centre to resemble a package. Carefully tie with kitchen string. Coat wrapped brie with cooking spray, and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees f for 25 minutes or until golden, shielding top of pastry with aluminium foil the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning. Remove from oven; let stand about 20 minutes before serving.

Remove string, and garnish with fresh herbs, if desired.

Serve with crackers.
