CRANBERRY AND BRIE PUFF PASTRY WREATH
I have been threatening to try the recipe for two years now and after last night’s attempt, it will be a few more times on the menu this festive season. This is really real festive food!
Golden puff pastry wreath filled with sweet cranberry sauce, oozy Brie cheese and pistachios is a fantastic addition to your holiday cheese board.
- 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
- 2 – 3 tablespoons cranberry sauce
- 200 g Brie cheese, sliced
- 2 tablespoons pistachio nuts, roughly chopped
- 1 egg, beaten
Preheat the oven to 200ºC and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Roll the pastry out to around 5 mm thick and cut a large circle out of the pastry.
Lay the pastry on the prepared baking sheet.
Mark a circle with a medium-sized bowl and with a sharp knife, cut 4 cuts across the center circle.
Spread the cranberry sauce around the center “star” then top with the Brie and pistachios.
Bring one point of the center star over the filling as well as bringing the outer edge of pastry inwards.
Press the two together and continue until you have a wreath.
Brush with beaten egg then place in the oven and allow to bake for 15 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
Remove from the oven, allow to rest for 5 minutes then slice and serve.
Sal dalk ‘n paar velle aanmekaar las vir ‘n groot weergawe, die kom relatief klein uit.
Ek sal ook baie meer cranberry en groter blokke kaas insit.
