Servings 6 as appetiser


  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry thawed
  • ½ cup cranberry sauce
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 wheel brie
  • egg wash


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lay one pastry sheet down onto a lined baking tray, and spread the cranberry sauce over the top to cover completely. Sprinkle with thyme, season, then lay the second pastry sheet on top.
  • Use a bowl to trace a circle (as big as possible) and trim the pastry to form a round. Set the off cuts aside. Next use the brie round to cut a circle from the centre and set these offcuts aside also.
  • Using a knife, cut vertical lines (3cm wide), leaving 1cm of pastry from the centre uncut. Work your way around the circle until complete.
  • Twist each pastry piece to create a spiral effect around the brie. Brush with egg wash, and bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, place the brie wheel in the centre and return to the oven for a further 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is gooey to touch and the pastry is golden. Serve immediately.

    […] For something a little different, try baking the cheese wheel in the center of a puff pastry wreath. […]
