Brie and Jam Puff Pastry Appetizer

This appetizer is a bite sized take on the  classic ‘Brie en Croûte’  or Brie (cheese) enclosed and baked inside puff pastry. This Brie and Jam Puff Pastry Appetizer combines, salt, sweet and tangy flavors in each buttery, flaky bite! Perfect for a party spread! Instead of the sweet jam you could also pair your Brie with Hot and Sweet Chutneys like Mango or Jalapeño. Brie is the perfect cheese for such ‘en croute’ recipes, because it melts just right in around the same time that it takes for the puff pastry to be baked perfectly.
