Baked Brie Phyllo Tarts


  • 10 oz. Brie
  • 15 Phyllo pastry shells
  • 6 oz. Fresh or frozen cranberries
  • ½ cup Water
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • 4 Medium-sized jalapenos


  1. Seed and mince the jalapenos. Combine sugar, water, cranberries and ½ of the minced jalapenos in a saucepan over medium high heat. Boil for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Allow to cool, then refrigerate until serving.
  2. To serve, preheat oven to 350. Pulse the brie, including the rind, in a food processor until well mixed. Scoop 2 tsp. brie into each phyllo shell and set on a baking sheet.
  3. Top with one 2 tsp. cranberry sauce, sprinkle with additional minced jalapenos.
  4. Bake for 5 minutes, or just enough to warm the brie. Serve
