Ingredients to make Cranberry Brie Bites

How to prepare our Brie Bites Recipe

To start this recipe, we’ll first want to get our puff pastry rolled out and portioned. To do that, flour up a cutting board before dropping a sheet of puff pastry onto it and giving it a light dusting of flour. Flour up a rolling pin before rolling over the puff pastry, just to smooth it out.

Once you’ve rolled out your pastry, start cutting it into small squares. You’ll want these squares to fit in the bottoms of heavily-greased mini muffin tins with just a bit of pastry going up the sides. my squares were about 1 and 1/4 inches.

Before tossing that pastry into an awaiting oven, we’re going to also add our cranberry sauce. Drop-in some generous teaspoons of cranberry sauce into each pastry-lined tin. Now transfer your cranberry and pastry to a 375-degree oven.

Cranberry added to the top of puff pastry

Let the pastry and cranberry cook for about 12 minutes- until the pastry has started to puff up significantly. Once you’ve pulled that from the oven, we can add our last couple of ingredients. First, drop in a very small piece of your brie. If you add too much, they will not be as pretty.

Then sprinkle in some rosemary before returning your brie bites to the oven.

Your bites should only need a few more minutes in oven to finish cooking. Give them probably another 2 minutes before pulling from the oven.
