Have I told you all how much I love cranberries? Oh right, I did. That’s why I’m back again this week with another cranberry recipe for holiday entertaining!
The holidays can be a challenging time for many people when it comes to portion control and finding the balance of nutritious foods and the indulgent temptations of the season. That’s why Sprouts Farmers Market has asked nine dietitians from across the country to create a healthier holiday spread.
They say the best things come in small packages. That’s why these single-serving Cranberry Brie Pastry Puffs are the perfect appetizer or dessert option for holiday entertaining. The flaky pastry puffs are filled with brie and antioxidant-rich cranberries, lightly sweetened with maple syrup and honey.ad: Include these Cranberry Brie Pastry Puffs at your next #holiday party #SharingHealthyHolidays… Click To Tweet
How to Make Cranberry Brie Pastry Puffs
To start, toss those gorgeous red cranberries in a mixture of Sprouts® 100% maple syrup, water, orange zest, and fresh rosemary. Add them to a baking dish and roast those babies in the oven for 15 minutes.
Next, you’ll need frozen puff pastry dough. I found this brand at my local Sprouts Farmer’s Market® store and it was really easy to work with.
Once you have the puff pastry dough rolled out and cut into eight rectangles (like below), use a pizza roller to create 16 square pieces.
Then we need some deliciously creamy Brie. Hallelujah for cheese! Go ahead and shout that out loud if your feelings for cheese are the same 🙂 You’ll only use 3 1/2 ounces of the Brie which means there will be leftovers to make a beautiful cheese plate if your heart so desires. This also came from Sprouts® but there should be a few different Brie options available if you can’t find this specific brand.
Now for the fun part…assembling the pastry puffs! To help you get a better idea of how to form these cute little pastry puffs, watch this quick video.
Gather the pastry puffs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silpat, leaving two inches between each, and place in oven to bake.
Ta-da! Flaky, perfectly portion pastry puffs are ready to party! What are your go-to healthier holiday recipes? I’d love to hear about them in the comments.
Wishing you all healthy & happy holidays!
