Crescent Wrapped Brie

1-1.5 (8-12 oz.) cans refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 (19.6 oz.) round natural Brie cheese (if you use the costco one you will need to cook longer--cover with tinfoil)
1 beaten egg
Broun sugar to liking (I use ¼ - ½ cup) 
Craisins to liking 
Crackers of choice
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Unroll dough and separate into 2 sections: combine ½ of the dough and roll with a rolling pin into a circle.  Do the same with the other half.  Place cheese round on center of 1 dough round. 
Add brown sugar and craisins on top of brie.  
Place remaining dough circle on top of cheese round and brown sugar.  Press dough evenly around cheese, folding bottom edges over top edges; press to seal completely (make sure it is sealed really well).  Place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Brush dough with egg.  Top with cutouts; brush with egg.  Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from cookie sheet;
place on serving plate.  
Cool 15 minutes. Serve warm with crackers. 

(You can use any toppings you like.  I’ve heard jam also works well.  You may also use pastry dough as a substitute for the crescent roll.)
*If you only use an 8 oz. brie round, then you only need 1 can of crescent rolls and 2-4 TBSP brown sugar.

I did it using the following method this year (a frozen puff pastry) and liked it more. But I put the craisins and brown sugar inside (like usual) instead of craisins and nuts as suggested below.
