This was such a delicious recipe! I made these for my holiday gathering and everyone loved them. I actually used wanton pastry and using a cookie cutter cut them into medium sized rounds. I baked them in a lightly sprayed mini-muffin tin this gave a sort of flowery croustade appearence. I filled each little flowery cup with brie and bacon topped with a dollop of cranberry sauce and continue to bake until the cups were a golden brown. I have seen this on the BBC done with Puff pastry and fried, but I enjoyed this much more. Thank you for posting this recipe. This is sure to become a holiday favourite!
