  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • 2
    Soak dried cranberries in a small bowl of water for one minute so that they are not hard.
  • 3
    Lay thawed puff pastry sheet on a cookie sheet.
  • 4
    In a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in pecans and cinnamon and toast for about 3 minutes.
  • 5
    Place Brie in the middle of the puff pastry.
  • 6
    Place pecan mixture on top of Brie.
  • 7
    Place brown sugar on top of pecan mixture. The heat of the pecan mixture will help melt the brown sugar.
  • 8
    Drain cranberries. Place them on top of brown sugar.
  • 9
    Bring the edges of the puff pastry up and press them together making sure to seal the dough. If you have excess dough you can cut a leaf or decoration to add to the top of the Brie.
  • 10
    Using a pastry brush, brush the entire pastry with the beaten egg.
  • 11
    Bake for 15-20 minutes in the oven or until the pastry is a golden brown.
  • 12
    Serve with crackers or just by the slice.
