Preheat oven to 400. Degrees F. Thaw pastry sheet at room temperature for 30 min. Mix egg and water and set aside. Unfold pastry onto lightly floured surface. Roll into 14” square. Cut off corners to make a circle. Spread preserves to within 1” of edge of pastry. Use enough preserves for 1/8" coverage. Soak cranberries in hot water for 1 minute and drain. Sprinkle cranberries and almonds over preserves. Top with the brie. Brush edges of circle with egg mixture. Fold two opposite sides over cheese to meet in the middle. Trim remaining two sides 2” from edge of cheese. This prevents too much pastry at the bottom. Fold the trimmed two sides onto the round. Press edges to seal. Place seam side down on baking sheet lined with Silpat or parchment paper. Decorate tops with pastry scraps if desired. Brush with egg mixture. Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Best if served hot with your favorite Cracker or sliced apples.
Variations: ¼ cup toasted almonds and ¼ cup parsley. Another favorite is chopped dried apricots soaked in enough apricot brandy to leave the cots sticky.
Pop's Notes: The cranberries and apricot allfruit (or Smuckers simply fruit) seems to be the favorite. No matter how it is done it is great, though I think the best was when the apricot simply fruit and cranberries were spread on the unsliced brie then
