Wow! These were fabulous! So simple, but very tasty and they look great :) I cut the recipe down, using a quarter of a package of puff pastry and made 9 which we devoured. I love the contrast of the sweet jam and the savoryness of the brie. The directions were very clear and they came out perfect. These would make a great party dish. Thanks for sharing Lainey! Made for ZWT 8 by one of The Wild Bunch.

- 1⁄2 cup cherry preserves
- 4 ounces brie cheese or 4 ounces camembert cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
