Merry Christmas

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas. May you spend it with family and friends that love you, and plenty of good food and drink!
Us? We're cozy for a day with family, opening gifts and each contributing an "appetizer" that is spread out throughout the day. Mom is starting us off with a breakfast pizza!

I am making Baked Brie and Prosciutto Rolls.

12 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
12 oz. Brie wheel, cut into 12 slices
12 thin slices prosciutto
Honey, for drizzling
Green apple, sliced thinly
Jam of your choice
Flaky sea salt and black pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 350ยบ F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Place 1 sheet of phyllo dough on a clean surface and gently fold it in half crosswise. Brush the phyllo with a little melted butter, being sure to cover the entire top half.

3. On the short end of the dough, spread a thin layer of jam and then place a slice of apple, piece of prosciutto, and a slice of Brie. Roll the phyllo up over the filling, folding the side edges in to seal, burrito style. Place the roll seam-side down on the prepared baking sheet and repeat to make 12 rolls total. Brush the tops of each phyllo roll generously with melted butter.

4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the rolls are golden brown on top. Remove and drizzle lightly with honey. Sprinkle with black pepper and a little flaky sea salt. Serve warm.
