Preheat the oven to 375 °F (190 °C). Place the tart shells on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper. Bake on the middle oven rack for about 10 minutes or until the pastry is lightly golden.

In a bowl, mix the cranberries with the nuts and cream cheese. Spoon 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the mixture into each tart shell and add a piece of Brie.

Bake on the middle oven rack for 5 minutes or until the Brie is melted. Dust with icing sugar, if desired, before serving. Garnish with cranberries coated in maple syrup.


Suggestion :For something different, use dried apricots or sliced apples instead of nuts. You can also replace the cranberries with various fruits.

Try the recipe with Camembert, Gouda, Cheddar, etc.
