Ingredients

  • 1 (8 oz | 250 g) tube crescent dough, (or 2 sheets of puff pastry, semi-thawed)
  • Nonstick cooking oil spray, for pan
  • Flour, for work surface
  • 1 (8 oz | 250 g) wheel of brie
  • 6 teaspoons whole berry cranberry sauce, or cranberry jelly/ jam
  • 6 teaspoons cooked diced bacon, (or bacon bits)
  • 6 pecans, halved lengthways
  • 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 6 teaspoons apricot preserves, (or jam)
  • 6 teaspoons crushed walnuts
  • 8 teaspoons butter, melted
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed or minced
  • 1 sprig of rosemary, leaves torn off stem
  • Salt, to taste
  • cracked black pepper, to season

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375° (180°C). Lightly grease a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out crescent dough and pinch together seams. Cut into equal 24 squares. Place squares into muffin tin holes.
  • Cut brie into 24 small pieces and place inside the dough cups.
  • Top as follows:
  • CRANBERRY BRIE BITES:
  • A spoonful of cranberry sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
  • MAPLE BACON:
  • A spoonful of cooked diced bacon, 2 pecan halves and a drizzle of maple syrup. Season with pepper.
  • APRICOT WALNUT:
  • A spoonful of preserves and crushed walnuts. Season with a pinch of salt.
  • GARLIC BUTTER HERB:
  • MIX the butter and garlic together. Top each bite with just over 1 teaspoonful of garlic butter mixture and 2-3 rosemary leaves. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Bake until the crescent pastry is golden, (about 10-15 minutes).

Notes

CRESCENT DOUGH: roll pastry out into a 10 x 14-inch rectangle. Cut the sheet lengthwise into 6 even strips, then crosswise into 4 even strips. You should have 24 squares. Separate and press each square of pastry gently into each muffin cup.
PUFF PASTRY: Use 2 sheets of semi-thawed puff pastry. (Semi-thawed is easier to cut.) Cut each pastry sheet lengthwise into 3 even strips. Then crosswise into 4 even slices. You should have 12 pieces per puff pastry sheet (24 in total). 
BRIE: Make sure to cut the Brie into 24 equal pieces (about 3/4-inch or 2cm pieces).
