Baked Brie Bites
Author: April | Food n' Focus
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
Total time: 20 mins
  • 1 package frozen puff pastry, thawed (2 sheets)
  • 1 small wheel brie cheese, cut into bite sized pieces
  • ⅓ cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup fig jam
  1. Preheat oven to 375°. On a clean surface, roll out puff pastry dough lightly. Using a round cookie cutter, cut out circles out of the dough and divide them between two baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until puffed up and slightly golden.
  2. Meanwhile, in a saute pan over medium heat, add butter or oil and stir in pecans. Add brown sugar and a pinch of salt and stir, allowing to toast for about 3 minutes. Pull the tarts out of the oven and let them cool slightly. (Note: some of them may get very puffed up; that is fine. Just push them down a bit when you are putting the other ingredients on top.)
  3. Top each tart with apricot preserve, followed by a small spoonful of the pecan mixture, and finally a piece of brie. Put back in the oven for another 3 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
