Cake Artist Extraordinaire at Zydeco Cakes
The Piece of Cake Mystery Series by Jacklyn Brady
Being an aunt is the best thing that has ever happened to me in my life. I mean my entire life.
But then along came John David, and he brought River back into my life on a more permanent basis. At least I hope River's going to stick around. Even better, this year, I think we're all going to sit down and have a Thanksgiving meal together. I mean, Edie just had the baby and all, so she's not going to cook (and the truth is we wouldn't want her to even if she wasn't recuperating).
Yeah. I'm going to suggest that. I think they'll go along with it, don't you?
So I was looking at all these other posts by all these other characters and I realized that almost everyone else is sharing a recipe that you could try for your Thanksgiving meal. That makes me feel kind of weird. I mean, I don't have any old family recipes to pass down or anything, but it seems like I ought to share something.
I almost gave up and then I remembered this amazing thing a friend made a few weeks ago that's seriously so easy even Edie could probably make it. Here's all you need:
- 1/2 of a 17.3 ounce package of puff pastry sheets. (This is 1 sheet.) Puff pastry is not the same thing as filo dough, so make sure you get the right thing when you're shopping.
- 1 8-ounce round of Brie.
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp water
