I always love hosting people and appetizers are something that I tend to not put a lot of effort into, but I want them to be delicious. Isn’t that what everyone wants? This is something I tried for the first time, but something I’m definitely making again. It was a huge hit and so simple to make! It also includes some of my favorite ingredients, cranberry sauce and brie! It’s all in individual puff pastries and so delicious. Everyone at the party loved them; they were the first thing to go. The brie makes them very cheese and gooey, with the puff pastry adding a buttery crunch to the outside and the tartness of the cranberry sauce is a perfect counter note. Your friends and family will think you’re a culinary wiz. I took my inspiration from tablespoon.
For the cranberry brie bites you need (18 bites):
1 wedge of brie
1 can of cranberry sauce
1 package of puff pastry (be sure to let it thaw in the fridge or on the counter)
To start with preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Then butter (or use pam) 18 tins between two muffin tins. Be sure to fill the empty tins with water before you put them in the oven!
Next cut the puff pastry in 18 pieces, 9 pieces per puff pastry sheet.
Put a square over each greased muffin tin.
Cut the brie into 18 pieces and put 1 piece on each square.
Put about 1/2 tablespoon of cranberry sauce on top of each square of brie.
Put in the oven and cook for 20 minutes.
Let them cool for 10 minutes and then put them on a tray to serve.
These have quickly become one of my favorite recipes, I may even be making it again this weekend! I hope you enjoy it. Remember to always live and let’s create!
