Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
For whatever reason, I thought the theme of my Brie was apple.. I have no idea where that came from. What I meant to make was a pepper, since the Brie is "pepper jelly". Essentially, you can decorate the pastry however you like. It's kind of fun coming up with decorations.
