Thaw 1 puff pastry sheet, I thaw mine on parchment paper so I can roll  it out on the paper afterwards. When the puff pastry sheet is thawed  out, but still cold, lightly flour the dough and your rolling pin. Roll  out the dough a little in each direction, it does not need to be thin  you are just making it slightly larger so it can wrap around the Brie.  Place the Brie round in the center of the pastry sheet and top with 1/4 – 1/2 cup of the apricot filling then sprinkle sliced almonds over the  top of the filling. Bundle the puff pastry up around the Brie and  slightly pinch the dough to help it stay in place. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes.

Looking for variations? Try using a raspberry filling or switching up  the nuts with some sliced pecans. You can serve this dish with sliced  pears and apples, crackers, or even crostinis (small slices of toasted  bread).
