Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 30
  • 2 packages of pre-made puff pastry (1 box)
  • 1 egg
  • splash of milk
  • Water
  • 2 oz. brie
  • For the Praline Pecans
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 T corn syrup
  • 1 T pure maple syrup
  • 3 T brown sugar
  • 1 T unsalted butter
  • 1 pinch salt
  1. Take out the frozen puff pastry and defrost until it reaches room temperature. This will take about an hour.
  2. When your puff pastry is almost completely defrosted, begin making your pecan mixture.
  3. In a small sauce pan, mix all of the ingredients together over medium heat. Cook until the sugar has dissolved completely. About 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool.
  4. Preheat the oven 375 F.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry. Using a small cookie or biscuit cutter (1½ inches), cut out the puff pastry into small circles.
  6. Take two circles and outline one of the rims with water using the tip of your finger.
  7. Place a small piece of brie in the center of the circle and top with about ½ tsp of the praline pecans. Top with the other circle and seal with a fork.
  8. When all of the bites are complete, whisk the egg with a splash of milk and brush each bite lightly with the egg wash.
  9. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden.
