When is too early for Christmas? Confession: the tree is up over here. And everyone knows that nothing goes with holiday cheer better than baked brie.

Cranberry Brie Pinwheels // Hunt & Harvest

These are considerably easier to make and eat than the wheel-wrapped-in-pastry concoction everyone is so fond of. I prefer the cheese to dough ratio a lot more here, too.

Cranberry Brie Pinwheels // Hunt & Harvest


1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed

3 tablespoons butter, melted and divided

8 oz. brie

1 cup dried cranberries

1/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix together sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Unroll puff pastry and brush with one tablespoon of melted butter. Sprinkle about a third of cinnamon sugar mixture over butter. Dice the brie into small pieces. Sprinkle the cheese and cranberries evenly over puff pastry. 
  3. Starting at one of the long ends, roll the pastry up as tightly as possible. Brush pastry log with remaining butter and sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar.
  4. Using a very sharp knife (or dental floss), slice log into half-inch slices. Place onto prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden and cheese is bubbly.
