Someone gave me this idea last week after posting my mini pecan pies and I just loved it! You see I’m a huge fan of baked brie, so naturally creating baked brie a bit lighter with better portion control sounded very appealing to me.

Trader Joe’s sells a light Brie which is what I used here, Presidente also carries one. For the topping, I thought using dried cranberries would be pretty for this time of year and I used honey as my glue to keep everything in place. And the taste? Just as good as the real thing, just be sure you don’t eat the whole tray!

A wedge of brie would be enough to make two batches, so if you are serving a crowd, you can easily double this recipe.
