Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly coat a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.

  • Unroll pie crust onto a cutting board or clean surface. Flatten dough to about 12 inches in diameter. Cut 24 2-inch circles out of the dough with a biscuit cutter, rerolling scraps if needed. Place the dough circles in the prepared muffin cups, gently pressing on the bottom and sides. Prick the dough with a fork. Bake until lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the oven.

  • Add 1 teaspoon cranberry sauce to each cup, then top with a piece of Brie. Return to the oven and bake until the sauce is hot and the cheese has melted, about 5 minutes more. Let cool for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with chives, if desired, and serve warm.


If you have time and enjoy making pastry, you can make you own crust. EatingWell's Butter Pastry Dough (see associated recipe) is easy to make and healthier than most recipes.
