The gourmet taste of this easy pastry recipe means that no one will believe that you made these Apricot Pecan Brie Tarts yourself! The apricot preserves and creamy texture of the brie make this sweet pastry the perfect option for any occasion. Serve them at your next holiday party, or during a movie night with someone special; no matter when you serve them up, this simple tart recipe is sure to impress. 

What You'll Need

  • 1 (8-ounce) brie round, chilled
  • 1 (17.25-ounce) package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
  • 1/3 cup apricot preserves
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped pecans

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Cut rind from cheese then cut cheese into 24 cubes; set aside.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, lightly roll out each pastry sheet to a 10- x 12-inch rectangle; cut each sheet into 12 equal squares. Fit squares into miniature muffin cups, extending corners slightly above cup rims.
  3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden. Remove from oven and gently press the handle of a wooden spoon into center of each pastry, forming tart shells.
  4. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon preserves into each shell; top with a cheese cube and sprinkle pecans evenly over tops. Bake 5 to 7 minutes, or until cheese melts; serve immediately.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I would love to make these for a take to party..Can they be made ahead and reheated? Or frozen and heated?

Hi there! It's best to serve this right away, but it can be made in the morning and reheated on the same day.

I've made these using pre-formed filo cups. I also used fig preserves and topped with bacon.

Sounds Wonderful I Love Apricots& Pecans
