*NOTE: You can use sliced turkey meat for this sandwich as well**NOTE: You CAN eat the rind from brie cheese (it's actually meant to be eaten) but if you want to remove the rind, the easiest way to do this is to use a vegetable peeler for the edges and a knife for the top (but you will lose some of the cheese):***NOTE: How to make Cosmo Cranberry Aioli
