A fruit spread and brie pairing is always a winning combination! For this recipe, I went to 'Just a Taste' blog. The pairing turned out AMAZING with a few, tiny modifications to fit our product line. So, here it is:
Brie Bites with Fruit Spread
- 1/2 cup Mt. Hope Farms' Raspberry-Marionberry Fruit Spread
- 1 (8 oz) cold wheel of Blue Heron Smoked Brie (substitute for whatever brand is available)
- 1 package (2 sheets) of cold puff pastry
- 1/8 cup toasted and finely chopped Oregon Hazelnuts
- 1 large farm fresh egg
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Unfold the puff pastry sheets onto a lightly floured cutting board. Using a pizza cutter, cut each sheet into 9 squares, making them as similar in size as possible.
- Cut the wheel of brie into 18-20 small wedges. Place a wedge of the brie into one corner of each pastry square, leaving room around the sides for crimping. Drop a tablespoon of Raspberry-Marionberry Fruit Spread on each wedge of brie and lightly sprinkle with hazelnuts.
- Fold each pastry square into a triangle being careful not to press out any of the filling (we definitely weren't good at this part ;) ). Crimp the edges with a fork to seal and cut a small slit at the top of the triangle to allow steam to escape.
- Whisk the egg in a small bowl and, using a pastry brush, lightly coat the top of the pastry triangles. Bake for 18 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool for at least five minutes before enjoying!
