Baked Cranberry Brie

  •  ¼ cup melted butter
Brush the top of each sheet of pastry with the melted butter and layer the pastry sheets on top of each other. Place the brie in the middle of the pastry and coat it with cranberry sauce. Twist the edges of the pastry around to enclose the brie in the pastry and brush with the remaining butter. Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees or until the crust is nicely browned. Let it sit for 20 minutes before serving.
