Cranberry Brie Puffs with Candied Walnuts



for the Candied Walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Cut each puff pastry sheet into 9 squares. Brush puff pastry with whisked egg. Gently press each puff pastry square into a muffin tin, egg side up.
  2. Add one cube of brie and a spoonful of cranberry sauce to each puff pastry. Drizzle with a little bit of honey and sprinkle lightly with thyme.
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until puff pastry is golden brown. It will look a bit messy at this point. Remove from oven and let cool for 4-5 minutes, which will allow the pastries to “set” a bit. Run a knife or offset spatula around the perimeter of each puff pastry and lift out of the pan. Top each puff with a few candied walnut pieces and serve.
