This is another frightfully simple thing to make for a Halloween party. It's baked brie en croute or brie baked in puff pastry. And yes I know where your mind is going and you're right, the pastry is golden and puffy and the brie is appealing runny inside and somehow it all stays together. I think there might be magic involved...
One word of warning Dear Ghouls. You really need to make more than one of these. This item was hungrily eaten by guests at the party and I only wished that I had made more of these. And there's nothing worse than when zombies get hungry!

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
1 wheel brie (not too large, it's easier if one sheet of puff pastry can wrap around it)
1 sheet puff pastry
1 egg yolk mixed with 2 tablespoons milk
Place brie on puff pastry sheet
Step 1 - Preheat oven to 220C/440F. Place brie in the centre of the puff pastry. Trim the edges and wrap the pastry around tucking and sealing it well. Use trimmed scraps to make a spider web pattern or you could do others like Munch's "The scream".
Tucked in and sealed on the bottom
Step 2 - Bake in the oven at 400F for 15 minutes. Serve with crackers.
