Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary, cut into 13 pieces, divided
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons whiskey
  • 1 package (13.2 oz.) puff pastry dough (1 sheet)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 4 ounces ham, diced
  • 4 tablespoons cherry jam
  • 4 ounces Murray's® Mini Brie Cheese, cut into 12 pieces

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • In medium nonstick pan over medium heat, melt butter. Add 1 piece of rosemary and garlic; cook 1 minute or until garlic is lightly browned.
  • Add mushrooms, salt and pepper; continue cooking 5 to 7 minutes, until mushrooms have browned.
  • Add whiskey; continue cooking 3 minutes, until alcohol burns off. Remove pan from heat; let cool.
  • Unroll the puff pastry dough; cut into 12 even squares.
  • In 12-cup muffin tin, place each square, pressing down slightly. Brush edges of puff pastry with beaten egg.
  • Bake 10 minutes, until the center puffs up slightly. Remove from oven.
  • Use the back of a spoon to slightly push down center of each cup. Fill 4 of the cups with sautéed mushroom mixture, 4 with an ounce each diced ham, and the remaining 4 with a tablespoon each cherry jam. Top each filled cup with a piece of Brie.
  • Return to oven; bake 3 to 5 minutes or until Brie is just slightly melted. Remove from oven. Let cool 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Top each Brie bite with a piece of rosemary, then serve.
