Cranberry-Brie Bites with Puff Pastry


Festive for any holiday gathering, yet simple enough for a weeknight dinner party, these cranberry-Brie bites are the perfect appetizer. Made with just three ingredients, these bites come together quickly and present beautifully. If you have time, you can make your own cranberry sauce. We keep it simple here, but consider garnishing with fresh thyme or rosemary or fresh orange or grapefruit zest.

Nutrition Profile:


  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed according to package instructions

  • 4 ounces Brie cheese, chilled and cut into 24 pieces

  • 1 cup cranberry sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 24-cup mini muffin tin generously with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. Lightly flour a work surface; roll puff pastry dough into a 10-by-15-inch rectangle. Cut the dough into 24 (2½-inch) squares using a knife or pizza wheel (you'll end up with 4 rows of 6 squares each).

  3. Press a square of dough into each cup of the prepared muffin tin. Add 1 Brie piece to each cup. Top each with 2 teaspoons cranberry sauce. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

  4. Remove plastic wrap. Bake until the cheese is melted and the pastry is golden, 16 to 18 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes in the tin before removing.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
