Be creative EVERY DAY • A Challenge
This was an experiment – that failed. But it still tasted good! And I learned from my mistakes…
Brain mold – plastic is fine, it’s not going in the oven
Brie round – that fits in the mold, I had to trim mine
Red jelly – less than a cup, I used seedless raspberry
Pastry – I used crescent rolls
Baking sheet – with a lip, lined with parchment paper
My brain looked great going into the oven, but melted into a yummy lump during baking.
Therefore, I SUGGEST
• chilling the molded brain before baking.
• OR Using pastry dough OR pie crust.
• OR going crazy and cutting the crescent rolls into snakes, then seaming them back together as brain squiggles because the seams puffed rather nicely on my finished brie.
• OR carefully slicing brain patterns on the pastry dough or pie crust.
