Brie Mummy

In case you were looking for a fun, easy Halloween appetizer to bring to your next Halloween party, you have come to the right place. It doesn't get much easier than our brie mummy. 
You only need 3 ingredients, well 4 if you include the olive eyes, and about half an hour to whip him up. We love to serve our mummy with grapes (oh my gosh grapes and warm brie, don't even get  me started!) and baguette bread. 
Be sure to check out more of our Halloween creations by clicking the "Holiday" bar at the top of the page and scrolling to Halloween. All the links to our bazillion other Halloween recipes are there!

Brie Mummy

1 sheet of puff pastry
3 Tbsp spicy, red pepper jelly
1 round of brie
olive slices (for eyes)

Also needed
egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 375. Lightly spray an oven safe dish with cooking spray, set aside. 
Place puff pastry sheet on a work surface and roll out to about a 12 X 12 square. Trim down to a 10 X 10 square, keeping the strips of dough you cut off aside. 
Place the pepper jelly in the center of the puff pastry. Spread out to approximately the same size as the round of brie. 

Place brie on top of the pepper jelly. 

Fold the corners of the dough up and around the brie. Pat firmly around the brie to make sure it is in a round shape and the dough is sealed. 

Place the dough, seam side down, in the prepared pan. Take the strips of dough you have reserved and cut them into thinner strips. Place the 2 olive slices on your mummy and then lay the strips of dough over the mummy, criss-crossing them across the face but being careful not to cover the eyes. Make sure the dough folds underneath the mummy so they don't pop off during baking.
Using a pastry or basting brush, brush egg on top of your mummy. 

Place in preheated oven and bake until pastry is golden brown, about 25 - 35 minutes. 
Remove from heat and serve warm.

The red pepper jelly is supposed to look like blood but, as you can see in the photo below....

It doesn't really show until you start digging in there. Feel free to add more red pepper jelly for a more dramatic effect. 
So much cheesy spookiness. We've made him a few times for our parties because he is so simple  AND almost everyone loves cheese so he is a popular addition to the table!
