So, we all know that anything pastry is a hit at a party. Whether it’s pigs in a blanket served with maple-mustard dipping sauce or Broccoli puffs, pastry is always a winner. I took inspiration from my Cranberry and Brie pastry wreath and mimicked the flavours that work so well together but tied it all up in a bite-sized pastry package. How cute?

Cranberry and Brie are two of my favourite festive combinations and by using shop-bought cranberry sauce (feel free to use home-made if you have it at hand), Brie cheese (because it gets baked you don’t have to worry about buying the most expensive French cheese you can find…keep that for the cheeseboard) and a roll of frozen puff pastry you are guaranteed big reward for very little effort.

What makes this recipe even better is that it’s the kind of thing you can assemble a day ahead and keep chilled (and wrapped) in the fridge until you’re ready to bake and serve. It takes all the work out of entertaining and goodness knows, we all need more of that now that the holidays are fast approaching. No more hostesses crying into their wine in the kitchen!

    About how big should I cut the squares? I get my pastry from a local bakery and the dimensions are not the same as the grocery store ones. Thanks!

    Loved your cranberry Brie wreath and the ham and cheese pinwheels I made at the last minute on Christmas morning with the extra dough! So easy and everyone thought I was a culinary genius (definitely am not!)

      I cut the entire pan into 9 squares but that was quite large. I would cut them into 12 squares or around 5cmx5cm.

      I’m so glad you liked all the other rrcipes!

    It looks as if the cranberry sauce has the whole berries in it, is that correct? I have to make these, they sound so delicious.

      The brand I use does but you can use any cranberry condiment you love.

    I’m sorry this doesn’t work at 180′ in this universe. I’ve raised the heat and added 10 min & its still not brown.
