Ever tried lingonberry jam?
First, let me just admit that I am little obsessed with lingonberries. Long before I ever stepped foot into an Ikea, I was loving on some lingonberries. My first discovery of these tart micro berries was at iHop. Sweedish crepes topped with a lingonberry butter spread and powdered sugar. (Copycat iHop Lingonberry crepes recipe here!) So so good! If you'd never tried them, I highly recommend them on crepes or toast with a lot of butter. You can also use them in this recipe. They are a little more tart than traditional jams so you made find you like a sweeter jam better, or you may want to add a sprinkle of sugar in if you use lingonberry jam.
Could you add nuts to these jam and brie knots?
Yes! I think almonds pair well with these. You can get creative and "glue" them to the outside with icing, or you could simple toss them inside along with the brie and jam so everything is enclosed neatly.

Baked Jam and Brie Knots
- 7 oz brie cheese
- 4 tablespoon jam
- 8 oz crescent rolls
- 4 tablespoon slivered almonds optional
- Cut brie cheese into 1" x 1" squares.
- Separate crescent roll dough into triangles along perforations. Place a square of brie cheese next to the shortest side of the triangle. Spoon ½ tablespoon jam over top of the brie. Add almonds to each if desired. Repeat for all triangles.
- Fold shortest corners over top of brie and jam and pinch together. Take the longest point of the triangle and wrap it around the outside forming a swirl and covering the open sides. Fold closed the three remaining corners on the bottom to prevent leakage.
- Arrange on an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 350˚ on a top rack for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
