These were FANTASTIC! They were simple to make and impressive enough that people thought I spent a lot of time on them! The people who were less-adventurous and had never had brie, were so surprised that they liked something new! Haha. After making them once as-is, I experimented with them some-- you can use the exact same recipe and substitute Lil' Smokies cut in half for the cranberry and they make an awesome savory bite. Another thing-- you can use Pillsbury croissants (in a can) if you can't find puff pastry!
Awesome! I think I got mine a little too full because the cheese bubbled out and ran over but it didn't stick so cleaned up easily enough. Instead of cranberry sauce I used leftover cranberry chutney from Kicked-Up Turkey & Havarti Melt. Also used a goat cheese brie which was a little runnier than I expected so that might have added to the bubbling over issue. Anyway, these are fab and I will be making them again for sure! Thanks for sharing!
These are so good and so easy! I used less cheese (a 7oz triangle) and less cranberries. I would have like more cranberries, but I don't know how you get more to fit without them spilling over the side (and causing them to stick). Mine took 20 minutes to bake. I made them a few hours ahead. I had leftovers the next day and they were still great - you could definitely make these ahead of time and leave covered in the fridge until serving.
This will make your party table look very festive. They are easy to make and the brie cheese with the cranberry is a great combination. I used the jellied cranberry sauce this time, but plan to use the canned whole berry next. These need to be cooled a little more to let the cheese cool before biting into. That cheese comes out really hot, OUCH! Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup (July '10-Jan '11)
Yummy! I served these on new years eve and everyone loved them. I used raspberry preserves instead of Cranberry sauce and it was great. thanks!
This is a fantastic recipe. The brie/cranberry combination is devine. I used phyllo dough, 2 sheets thick, and used the mini-muffin pan to hold it together, twisting the tops into little pouches and brushing with melted butter. I didn't use a full T of the sauce, maybe 3/4 of a t instead. Also, made half with fig preserves which was also very good. A sure winner.
Very easy and delicious! Will definitely be making them again. They are a little large for "bite size" appetizers, more like 2-4 bites each even in the mini muffin tins I have.
These were yummy! I didn't read the part about only letting them partially cool before removing from the tins, so mine stuck quite a bit. They were really ugly, but I got a lot of compliments on them.
These were really good, and so easy! My cooking time was more like 20 minutes. Thanks for sharing!
Made as directed for pre-Thanksgiving day dinner appy. OMG! These were so easy to put together and once everyone had tasted them, they flew off the platter. What I like about them is how they look so upscale and elegant while being super easy. Nice flavor...thanks for sharing.
