Cranberry-Orange Brie Tarts

Cranberry-Orange Brie Tarts

The pairing of cranberry and orange is a favorite, especially during the holidays. Here the tart sweetness plays well with the creamy Brie sheltered in the premade phyllo shells. It’s an ideal appetizer for a crowd!

Makes 45 servings


  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 orange, zested and juiced
  • 45 (1-inch) mini phyllo shells
  • 8 oz Brie cheese, cut into 45 cubes


In a saucepan, combine sugar and water; bring to boiling. Add cranberries; return to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer over low heat for 5 to 10 minutes or until cranberries pop and mixture thickens. Remove from heat and stir in orange zest, reserving some for garnish, and orange juice. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place phyllo shells on a baking sheet. Place one cube of Brie in each phyllo shell. Cover with foil and bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until Brie is melted. Remove from oven; top each tart with 1 to 1½ teaspoons of cranberry mixture. Garnish with remaining orange zest.
