I personally, don’t run, so I just come and enjoy the party afterwards. This year, I brought these puffs to the party. I wish that I would have made more because they were gone in under 5 minutes. I managed to snag one for my hubby and even snuck a bite of his pastry while he wasn’t looking. It was very good. I think, I will make a batch for the Thanksgiving dinner this year. These pastries were just too good not to make again.
*I got this idea on Joy The Baker, but made a few changes for my taste.
Makes 18 pastries
4 sheets puff pastry, thawed but still cold
2/3 wedge of brie, cold
5-6 oz cup cranberry sauce
1 large egg, beaten
Preheat oven to 375 and grease the thin baking sheet
1. Cut each pastry sheet into 9 squares.
2. Cut the brie into 2×1 inch rectangles and about a 1/4 to 1/6 of an inch thick.
3. Place the brie slices on top of the pastry square.
4. Top the brie with about 1/2 tbs of cranberry sauce.
5. Wet your fingers and lightly rub the edges of the pastry squares. Top off with another pastry square. Using a fork, press the edges of the pastries.
6. Brush the pastries with beaten egg.
7. Bake the pastries in batches for about 15-17 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.
