  • 17 oz package frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 1⁄2 pound Brie cheese
  • 1 cup good quality cranberry sauce or cranberry jam
  • 1⁄2 pound bacon cooked and chopped
  • 2 red onions sliced, sauteed and seasoned


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Using a cookie cutter a little larger than your tartlet pan sections, cut 12 rounds out of the pastry.
  • Press each round into a tartlet section set aside.
  • If you haven't done so already, brown the bacon & sauté the onions in separate pans.
  • Place 2 teaspoons of cranberry jelly into each section, followed by a teaspoon of the sautéed onions.
  • Remove the crust from the top of the cheese. Use a teaspoon to scoop the cheese out, place two teaspoons of cheese into each section.
  • Top with the bacon.
  • Bake about 15-20 minutes or until puff pastry is browned
  • Let cool 5 minutes before serving.



  • When using frozen puff pastry, allow thawing overnight before using.  This will make the pastry pliable without becoming too soft.
  • Flour your worktop before rolling the pastry. This helps to roll out smooth and prevent sticking or pulling.
  • Roll Gently - Puff pastry is delicate if use too much force, you'll lose some of the flakiness.
  • Don't Skip the Docking of the pastry.  Docking the pastry before filling will make the edges puff up and the center will stay down.
  • Don't overcook the bacon. The bacon will cook more during bacon so cook just until crisp.
