I may have mentioned that I really love Halloween a time or two over the past month, so it should come as no surprise that I try to have a Halloween party each year. Nothing insane, like a haunted house, spending hundreds renting a screen worthy costume, or anything, but a fun excuse for friends to get together and enjoy coming up with crazy outfits. This year's Halloween party was actually on November 1st because Halloween was on a Friday and trying to get ready for a party after working all day would not have made me a happy hostess. Plus there is NO way that my house would have been presentable Friday night. And the weekend before Halloween I was dog sitting for Sophie because my parents were out of town, so that was out. But it worked out great and gave me my theme, an All Saints' Day Halloween party.

1 round of brie (4-6 inch diameter)
1 package of Pillsbury original crescent dough (makes 8 rolls)
1 jar of raspberry jelly
Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Get out an 8" x 8" baking dish and coat the bottom of the dish with a thin layer of olive oil or butter. Open and separate your crescent dough into the 8 triangles. Lay them out in your baking dish to create a solid base for the brie, alternating the directions of the triangles, i.e. straight end then pointed end, etc. Put your brie round on the dough and then cover the top of the brie with some of your raspberry jelly. **I would not recommend doing what I did, putting a big glob of jelly in the middle of the brie assuming that it would spread out while cooking. It does not.*** Then fold the dough over the top of the brie and jelly, checking for gaps around the sides. Bake in a 375 degree oven until golden brown, roughly 15 minutes.
P.S. Didn't my mom do a great job helping me take photos?!?
