Cranberry Brie Bites

You say pee-can, I say puh-can

This is a great way to repurpose that cranberry sauce. If you don’t have phyllo dough, wonton wrappers will also do the trick. (Sunday Suppers will return next week.)

Cranberry Brie Bites

  • 5 pieces phyllo dough
  • 12 pecans
  • 2-3 ounces brie
  • 6 tsp cranberry sauce
  • about 2 tsp olive oil or melted butter

Brush olive oil or melted butter between each layer of dough. Stack the pieces evenly. Cut the layers into 12 squares using a pizza cutter. Push the squares into a mini muffin tin with the edges sticking up. Bake at 350 until golden, about 15 minutes. Cut a piece of brie and place in the bottom of each cup. Return pan to the oven and let brie soften, about 4-5 minutes. Allow to cool slightly. Top each cup with a half teaspoon of cranberry sauce and a pecan.

    Delicious combination of textures (crispy and creamy) and tastes (sweet and salty) in this dish. I love both brie and cranberry.

  15. What a fun and tasty idea!

  16. Love the little parcels!

  17. I like these very much. So simple and beautiful. Little bites with some of our favorite seasonal ingredients. BTW I say “puh-cans” as well.

  18. What a great way to use up that leftover cranberry sauce and I’m loving the idea of brie&cranberry…yum. I also say “puh-can” as well πŸ˜›

    They look fantastic.

  21. nancyc says:

    That’s such a great appetizer idea!

  22. I loooove foods in tiny bite-sized form, and these look super delicious.

  23. Great looking appetizer…I’d make it even if I wasn’t repurposing cranberry sauce! I say puh-can…I was born in Alabama. My husband says pee-can…he was born in Ft. Lauderdale. He’s wrong.

  24. Jessica says:

    I feel like this is the kind of thing people would go nuts over on pinterest because it’s so clever. puh-can is the only way to say pecan.

  25. Kristy says:

    I’m so glad that I’ve been saving this one in my inbox. I’m making it this weekend!!! Maybe tomorrow. I have a bit of remaining cranberry sauce. I have mini-phyllo cups. I have pecans. All I need is some brie. I’m all over this. πŸ™‚
