Delight your taste buds and impress your guests with our Sweet and Savory Cranberry Brie Tartlets, a culinary masterpiece that perfectly balances the tanginess of cranberry sauce with the creaminess of Brie cheese. These open-top pastry treats are not only visually stunning but also a delightful blend of flavors and textures, making them an exquisite addition to your appetizer spread. Adorned with fresh thyme leaves, these tartlets offer a symphony of taste sensations that elevate any gathering or celebration to a new level of culinary excellence.


  • 1 sheet of puff pastry (thawed if frozen)

  • 6 oz (about 170g) Brie cheese, cut into small cubes

  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce (homemade or store-bought)

  • Fresh thyme leaves for garnish

  • 1 egg (for egg wash, optional)

  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. Prepare the Pastry:

  • Roll out the puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface to smooth out any creases.

  • Cut the pastry sheet into smaller squares or rectangles, approximately 3x3 inches each.

3. Assemble the Tartlets:

  • Place the pastry squares on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  • Add a small cube of Brie cheese in the center of each pastry square.

4. Add Cranberry Sauce:

  • Top the Brie with a small spoonful of cranberry sauce in the center of each pastry square.

5. Season and Garnish:

  • Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper over the tops of the tartlets.

  • Garnish each tartlet with a few fresh thyme leaves.

6. Optional Egg Wash:

  • For a golden finish, you can brush the edges of the pastry squares with a beaten egg.

7. Bake:

  • Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the pastry is puffed and golden brown, and the Brie cheese is melty and bubbly.

8. Serve:

  • Remove the tartlets from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.
