Brie Pastry Cups

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on
your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one
who'll decide where to go..."
by Dr. Seuss 

Brie is a soft cow's cheese named after the French region from which it originated.
This appetizer recipe is from 
Brie Cherry Pastry Cups
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 1/2 cup cherry preserves (I used red pepper jelly)
  • 4 oz. Brie cut in 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans 
  • 2 TB. minced chives
  • Thaw puff pastry about 40- 45 minutes
  • Unfold and cut into 36 squares
  • Press squares gently into greased miniature muffin cups
  • Bake for 10 minutes
  • Use end of a wooden spoon to make 1/2 in indentation in center of each and bake 6 minutes longer or until browned
  • With spoon handles press pastry down again
  • Spoon a rounded teaspoon of jelly/preserves into each cup
  • Top with 1/2 inch piece of Brie cheese, sprinkle nuts and chives over it
  • Bake 3 minutes longer or until cheese melted

Oh, and don't forget to serve a glass of Sauvignon Blanc with it!
