   17      oz            wheel of Brie -- chilled
    1      sheet         frozen puff pastry -- thawed
    3      tbs           butter
    3      large         onions -- sliced
    1      tsp           dried thyme
    2                    garlic cloves -- minced
      1/2  cup             dry white wine
    1      tsp           sugar
    1                    egg yolk
 
 1.  Prepare caramelized onions:
 
 Melt butter in large skillet over medium high heat.  Add onions, saute until ju
 st tender.  Add thyme, reduce heat to medium and cook until onions are golden, 
 stirring often.  Add garlic and saute two minutes.  Add 1/4 cup wine, stir unti
 l almost all liquid has evaporated.  Sprinkle sugar over onions and saute until
  soft and brown.  Add remaining wine and stir till liquid evaporates.  Season t
 o taste with salt and pepper.
 
 2.  On lightly floured board, roll out pastry to 1/8Ó thickness.  Transfer to a 
 baking sheet.
 
 3.  Halve Brie horizontally.  Place one half of Brie, cut side up, in middle of
  pastry.  Top with caramelized onions.  Cover with other half of Brie, cut side
  down.
 
 4.  Draw pastry up around brie, holding corners.  Tuck edges in and twist corne
 rs together to form bundle.
 
 5.  Beat egg yolk with 1 tsp water and brush on pastry, avoiding edges.
 
 6.  Bake at 425¼ for 20 minutes or until golden and puffed.  Let Brie stand in p
 an on rack for 20 minutes for runny cheese or 40 minutes for thicker cheese.
