Special Equipment

  • Muffin pan
  • Cutting board
  • Knife
  • Pastry brush or spoon
  • 2 teaspoons for plating

Ingredients

  • 8 Ounces Brie cheese (about ½ of a round container)
  • 1 Sheet Puff pastry, thawed (usually 2 sheets come in a box)
  • 2-3 Tbsp Butter
  • 2-3 Tbsp Fig Jam
  • Fresh thyme sprigs  To Garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Layout the puff pastry on your cutting board. Using your knife cut into thirds lengthwise. Rotate the puff pastry and cut into thirds again forming 9 individual squares.
  • Grease the muffin pan with some of the butter or a non-stick spray.
  • Very gently press one of the dough squares into the muffin pan. Repeat for all the squares.
  • Melt the butter in the microwave or in a small pan on the stove top. Using your pastry brush or a spoon, brush the tops of the pastry.
  • ake for 10-12 minutes. In the meantime cut the brie into 9 each wedges.
  • Remove the pastry from the oven and top with the brie. Bake for an additional 5-8 minutes until the brie is melted and the pastry is slightly browned.
  • (If you’re planning to eat these later on then just before eating, warm in the oven and continue with “plating instructions” when you’re ready.)

Plating Instructions

  • Place 2 or 3 of the pastry squares in the center of a plate.
  • Using your teaspoons, scoop about 1 tsp. Of jam and use the other spoon to shape it into a quenelle (AKA a football shape), then place on top of the melted brie. Repeat for all the pastry squares.
  • Top with some fresh thyme and enjoy right away!
