Puff Pastry Wrapped Brie | Every Appetizer table needs a wheel of brie! This creamy cheese is piled high with dried fruit and nuts all encased with a crispy puff pastry. It’s never a bad thing when you can create a wow appetizer for your table without spending tons of time doing it.
Here’s how you can create this super easy tasty appetizer.
First…. let’s talk about the cranberry relish I found. This relish is packed with lots a great ingredients like cranberries, apple, orange peel and Port Wine to mention a few. So if you come across it at your grocery store I highly recommend you picking up a jar. If you can’t find it then you can use whole berry cranberry sauce.
Roll out a sheet of store bought puff pastry and place brie wheel in the center.
Pile on the dried fruit and nuts.
Wrap and twist the dough around the wheel.
Bake until puffy and golden.
