Cranberry Brie Bundles (can be pre-frozen)

These wonderfully easy to make little bundles of sweet, creamy deliciousness are the perfect appetizer.

Better still, they can be made ahead of time and frozen!

I take an hour to make these up over the holidays and keep a batch at the ready to serve as an appetizer before our Christmas turkey.

Trust me when I tell you, there are never any leftovers!

Learn how to make them with my easy to follow step by step video.




Prep Time: 15 minutes
Bake Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 24

Ingredients
  • 1-1/4 cups butter, melted
  • 1 package (16 ounces, 18-inches x 14-inches sheet size) frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • 1-1/2 cups cranberry jelly
  • 8 ounces Brie cheese, rind removed, cubed
Directions
  1.  Take an individual phyllo sheet and brush it generously with melted butter (Keep remaining phyllo covered with waxed paper to avoid drying out.)
  2. Cut widthwise into 4 strips. Cut lengthwise to make four squares. Stack one on top of the other and then place buttered side down into a mini muffin pan. Continue to do this until 24 mini muffin tins are filled.
  3. Add a tsp of cranberry jelly to each and a cube of brie.
  4. Fold over (like the picture) to form a bundle and brush with more melted butter. 
  5. You can freeze these on the tray at this point and then, once frozen, remove to a freezer bag.
  6. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes if defrosted, or 20 minutes if frozen or until golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 24
