Servings 12 servings


  • Mini muffin tin pan


  • 1 tub Crescent Sheet roll or puff pastry sheet cut into 2 inch squares
  • 6 oz. Brie cheese cubed
  • 1 tbsp. unsalted butter softened
  • cup cranberry sauce about 1 tbsps. per piece
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme or rosemary finely chopped
  • ¼ cup walnuts crushed
  • 2 tbsps. honey optional for topping drizzle


  • Preheat oven to 400 degree F.
  • Grease the 12 piece non-stick mini muffin tin pan with butter.
  • Cut the crescent sheet into 1.5-2 inch squares. The whole sheet should be cut evenly into 12 pieces.
  • Cut the brie cheese into 1 inch cubes.
  • First, place each crescent dough piece into the individual muffin tins. Add a piece of brie cheese, top with the cranberry sauce and add the herbs and crushed walnuts on top. You can also add the walnuts afterwards if you prefer.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until the sides on the crescent dough is golden on the sides and the center cheese has melted.
  • Remove from the oven and let it cool for a couple of minutes. If you wish to drizzle some honey before serving you can do that now.
  • Serve and enjoy!



  • Use a preheated oven.
  • Put the brie in the freezer for 15 mins before adding to the pastry. Slightly frozen brie is much easier to cut into even cubes.
  • Aim to cut your crescent squares into similar sizes, for even cooking.
  • Be sure to grease your muffin tin with butter for easy bite removal!
  • If you would rather not use cranberry sauce, you can use any flavored jelly instead.
  • When the sides of the croissant dough are golden on the sides and the center cheese has melted, they're done!
  • If you don't like nuts or even herbs, you can simply take those off.
  • Top with a drizzle of honey for a lovely balance of sweetness.
