For that perfect Holiday appetizer. think about making this Cranberry Pecan Brie covered with Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets !
With regards to the holiday season, it’s by pointing out dinner, right? I am talking about you slave over your poultry or pork, the lump free gravy, the homemade cranberry sauce, the stuffing, the desserts! I am talking about we spend the month of December allowing the perfect cookie trays! However if you simply possess a family like mine, you need to nibble on something Prior to the dinner is prepared. Yes?
One factor I usually continue hands within my freezer are Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets. I personally use these to make quick breadsticks. breakfast struedels. and simple turnovers. They are ideal for time saving meals, but additionally scrumptious too!
This season, I've discovered myself obsessive about Brie Cheese. I'm able to’t appear to consume enough. No requirement for not a cracker, and that i’m a contented girl.
But rather of serving only a slice of cheese, I needed to &"dress up&" for that holidays.
I understand a lot of you like homemade cranberry sauce. You shout in the roof tops that the recipe is the greatest! You set orange zest or ginger root or cardamom, and claim it’s the very best. And That I trust you. So with this recipe, make use of your favorite cranberry sauce. Personally, i occur to such as the canned stuff, haha. I made use of 1 cup from the Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce. I additionally added about 1/2 cup of chopped pecans. For one little extra flavor!
Assembling the appetizer required almost no time. But, plan in advance. You have to thaw your puff pastry for around 40 minutes in your counter! Once thawed, unfold the pastry and put your wheel of Brie cheese within the center. Top it together with your cranberry sauce and chopped pecans.
Before wrapping the cheese, I made use of a little &"leaf&" formed standard to chop TWO leaves for garnish. I cut them from a large part from the Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets. This really is totally optional. You are able to cut a pumpkin, or poultry, or free.
Go ahead and take 4 corner and pinch them up at the very top. Now you'll have 4 open loops around the sides. Grab all of individuals and pinch them on the top too so there aren't any openings inside your pastry. To assist the very best look pretty, I placed the 2 leaves on the top from the seams. Bake your pastry and revel in as the cheese is soft and gooey! You'll love the tart cranberry using the taste from the brie cheese! And also the flaky Puff Pastry just causes it to be all taste better!
