  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 8 oz wheel of brie cheese with rind removed, cut into 24 pieces
  • 2 boxes Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Shells, 6 shells per box


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray mini muffin pan (24 mini muffins) with cooking spray.
  • In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat and add the chopped pecans.
  • Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until the pecans are toasted.
  • Add the cinnamon and stir. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Remove pastry shells and cut each shell in half.
  • You will end up with 24 halves.
  • Roll each half shell in your hands in the shape of a ball.
  • Flatten each ball with your palms and press into each hole of the muffin pan to make a small pie shell.
  • Place 1 piece of brie cheese into each mini pie shell.
  • Add the brown sugar to the cooled pecan mixture and mix well.
  • Sprinkle pecan mixture evenly over all 24 mini pie shells.
  • Press the tops with the back of a spoon so that the pecans cook into the melted cheese.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until pastry shells are golden brown.
