These delightful parcels of indulgence bring together creamy brie, homemade red wine-infused cranberry sauce, crunchy pecans, and a drizzle of honey—all encased in golden puff pastry.

  • 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
  • 200g Brie cheese, cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 cup whole cranberry sauce (homemade recipe below)
  • 1/4 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 egg (for egg wash)
  • Fresh rosemary for garnish (optional)

For Cranberry Sauce:

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup red wine (choose a Pinot Noir, Cabernet or Merlot)
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  1. In a saucepan combine cranberries, sugar, red wine, orange zest, and a cinnamon stick. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  2. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until the cranberries burst and the sauce thickens.
  3. Remove from heat, discard the cinnamon stick, and let it cool.
  4. Preheat your oven to 200°C.
  5. Roll out the thawed puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.
  6. Using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter, cut the pastry into squares or rectangles, depending on your preference.
  7. Place a cube of Brie in the center of each pastry square, and top with a small spoonful of cranberry sauce.
  8. Sprinkle chopped pecans over the cranberry sauce, then fold the corners of each pastry square towards the center, creating a little package. Press the edges to seal.
  9. Beat the egg and brush it over the top of each puff pastry bite for a golden finish.
  10. Place the assembled bites on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the puff pastry is golden brown and puffed.
  12. Remove from the oven and immediately drizzle honey over each puff pastry bite, garnishing with fresh rosemary if desired.
  13. Allow the bites to cool for a few minutes before serving!
