  • flour
  • 1 sheet puff pastry thawed
  • Roughly 1 c. leftover Cranberry-Orange Relish or other cranberry sauce (see notes)
  • 1/3 lb. brie about half a wedge, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (no need to remove the rind)


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Place a silicone muffin pan on a baking sheet and set aside.
  2. Sprinkle a clean counter top lightly with flour. Roll out one sheet of puff pastry dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into 12-15 square pieces. Place each square in a space in a silicone muffin pan, pressing down slightly so that bottom and sides line the space, with extra puff pastry hanging over top.
  3. Place a cube of brie in the center of each piece of puff pastry. Top with 1-2 tsp. of cranberry-orange relish.
  4. Bake for 8-12 minutes, until brie is melted and top of puff pastry is beginning to brown.
  5. Remove from oven. Allow to cool for a few minutes before transferring to a serving dish.
  6. Serve hot.

Recipe Notes

I used leftover cranberry-orange relish in this recipe. The relish can be made ahead of time and frozen until needed for these brie bites or to accompany a turkey dinner.
