- Serves: 12 persons
- 1cup fresh cranberries

- ½cup strawberry jam
- 1sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
- 1(8 ounce) round Brie cheese, rind removed
- 2ounces white chocolate, chopped

Step 1Combine cranberries, cranberry juice, and 1/2 cup of sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Cook until liquid is reduced almost by half, approximately 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove cranberry reduction from heat and let it cool for 10 to 15 minutes.
Step 2Once cranberry reduction has cooled, pour it into a food processor along with the strawberry jam and pulse until the mixture is roughly pureed.
Step 3Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Unroll puff pastry and place on the prepared baking sheet.
Step 4Slice Brie cheese into lengthwise pieces and layer on the puff pastry approximately 1/2 inch from the edges. Spoon cranberry reduction over cheese, followed by white chocolate and walnuts. Sprinkle remaining 2 teaspoons of sugar on top.
Step 5Bake in the preheated oven until puff pastry is golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
