1 17.3-ounce package puff pastry (2 sheets), thawed
Preheat oven to 400°F. On a lightly floured surface, roll both sheets of puff pastry into 12-inch squares. Cut a 1-inch-wide strip of pastry from each of the squares; set aside. Trim squares to 9-inch circles. Place one of the circles on a large baking sheet or oven-safe 12-inch serving plate.
Place brie on pastry and pull the pastry up the sides. (The pastry will not come all the way up the sides of the brie round.) Spread jelly on top of the brie. Sprinkle with almonds. Carefully place the remaining puff pastry circle on top of brie, folding edges down. (Brie may not be completely enclosed.)
