To make these Mini Baked Brie Roll Ups, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
- 1 small wheel of brie cheese
- 1/4 cup of cranberry sauce
- 1/4 cup of chopped pecans
- 1 egg, beaten
The puff pastry is the base for these roll ups and provides a flaky and buttery texture. You can find puff pastry in the freezer section of your local grocery store.
Brie cheese is the star of this recipe and adds a creamy and rich flavor. Look for a small wheel of brie that is about 7-8 ounces in weight. Remove the rind from the brie before using it in this recipe.
Cranberry sauce adds a touch of sweetness and tanginess to the roll ups. You can use homemade cranberry sauce or store-bought. If you prefer a different flavor, you can also use apricot preserves or fig jam as a substitution.
Chopped pecans provide a crunchy texture and add a nutty flavor to the roll ups. If you have any other favorite nuts, such as walnuts or almonds, feel free to use them instead.
The beaten egg is used to brush the puff pastry before baking. This helps to achieve a golden and flaky crust.
