These delicious bites are the perfect combination of sweet and savory and are sure to be a hit with your guests. To make them, you’ll need:

Start by preheating the oven to 350°F. Then, in a small bowl, mix together the cranberries, pecans, honey, and cinnamon.
Cut the Brie wheel into 1-inch cubes and place each cube into a mini muffin tin.
Top each cube with a spoonful of the cranberry mixture. Cut the puff pastry sheets into small squares and place one
square on top of each Brie cube. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until the puff pastry is golden brown. Let cool before serving.
