  • Step 2

    Roll 1 puff pastry sheet out into a 10×14-inch rectangle. Cut the sheet lengthwise into 4 even strips and crosswise into 6 even strips; there should be 24 squares. Separate and press them gently into the muffin cups.

  • Step 3

    Cut chilled Brie cheese into 24 pieces approximately 3/4-inch in size. Add 1 teaspoon cranberry sauce to each pastry-lined muffin cup; press in 1 piece of Brie and top with 1 teaspoon of chopped walnuts. Sprinkle bites with sea salt. Chill for at least 30 minutes and up to 3 days.

  • Step 4

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Step 5

    Bake bites in the preheated oven until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.

  • Cook's Note:

    Placing the Brie cheese in the freezer for 20 minutes makes it easier to cut.
