Walnut and Brie Puff Pastry Bites

Flakey squares of puff pastry are baked with Brie, walnuts and dried cranberries. Sub raw walnuts with our Honey or Rosemary Walnuts for a touch of added sweetness/herbaceousness to pair perfectly with the salty brie. A drizzle of honey and fresh thyme and basil leaves finish this appetizer. Click here to view the recipe.


  • 1 (17.3-oz.) box frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/2 pound Brie cheese, sliced
  • 1 cup chopped Nutty Gourmet Honey/Rosemary Walnuts
  • 1 cup dried cranberries, divided
  • Fresh thyme and basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Unfold puff pastry and cut each sheet into 6 pieces. Poke holes in the surface of the pastry with a fork to keep from puffing too much during baking. Top with equal amounts of cheese and sprinkle with 3/4 of the walnuts and 3/4 of the cranberries.

  3. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.

  4. Place thyme and basil leaves on each pastry square. Sprinkle with remaining walnuts and drizzle with honey. Garnish with remaining cranberries.
