Get ready to elevate your holiday gatherings with our delectable Strawberry Brie Bites – a perfect blend of sweet and savory encased in flaky puff pastry. These bite sized delights are not just a treat for your taste buds but also a visual delight. Here's how you can create these culinary masterpieces in your own kitchen:
- 1 jar Good Good Strawberry Jam, at room temperature
- 2 sheets (one full package) puff pastry, thawed
- 1 (8 ounces) regular Brie cheese, chilled (Avoid extra creamy for best results)
- 1 small egg, at room temperature
- 1 tablespoon melted butter (for greasing muffin tin)
- 1/4 cup chopped pistachios, for garnish
- Preheat Oven: Heat your oven to 375°F.
- Prepare Muffin Tin: Grease 24 mini muffin tins and cut puff pastry sheets into 3x3 inch squares using a pizza cutter.
- Prepare Brie Cheese: Slice Brie cheese into 1/4 inch thick and 1inch long pieces. Place these slices on top of puff pastry squares.
- Assemble Brie Bites: Gently place puff pastry squares with Brie inside the muffin tin. Brush the pastry edges with an egg wash.
- Bake to Perfection: Bake for 1015 minutes or until pastry corners turn lightly brown.
- Cool and Garnish: Let the baked brie bites cool for 5 minutes. Top each bite with 1 teaspoon of Good Good Strawberry Jam and garnish with chopped pistachios just before serving.
Notes: The Brie cheese rind need not be removed; it will melt slightly into the puff pastry, enhancing the flavor.
