Ingredients

Instructions

  • Unfold thawed puff pastry sheets and roll with rolling pin just to blend in the creases. Cut each sheet into about 16 equal pieces, cutting 4 strips by 4 strips. Press each square into a muffin tin cavity that has been sprayed well with oil. Press firmly into the bottom of the muffin tin and form gently into a cup like form.
  • Slice brie into 32 one inch pieces. You can freeze the brie for 15 minutes for easier slicing. Place each piece into the puff pastry and add 1 teaspoon of jam. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.
  • Bake for about 15-17 minutes in the oven preheated to 350°F or until puff pastry is golden brown. Remove from oven and sprinkle with thyme leaves if desired. allow to cool for several minutes before removing from muffin tins and then serve.

Notes

  • Make sure to spray your muffin tins well! I have run into my fair share of scraping puff pastry that is stuck to the bottom of the muffin tin--not fun. Take if from me, you want your puff pastry brie bites to easily come out of the tin. Better presentation if they are in one piece!
  • You can make these smaller and use a mini muffin tin instead. If you are using a 10x14 inch puff pastry, you should be able to cut it 6 times lengthwise and 4 times in the opposite direction to get 24 smaller pieces. You will want to cut your brie slightly smaller and opt for just ½ teaspoon of jam. Baking time will be relatively the same but keep an eye on them at the 15 minute mark. If using the Pepperidge Farm brand, you can attempt to make 2 inch by 2 inch squares by cutting 5 equal sections across each way.
  • You can prep these in advance. Allowing these puff pastry bites to chill before baking is ideal. 30 minutes is fine, but you can make these up to 3 days in advance and then pop them in the oven when you are ready to bake.
