This air fryer baked brie is the perfect holiday appetizer. Prep the day before and pop in the air fryer for 12 minutes when you are ready to serve for an easy yet impressive appetizer

  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry
  • 8 ounces wheel of brie
  • 1 egg
  1. Combine the cranberries and honey in a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until the cranberries start to pop and soften. About 6-8 minutes

  2. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the orange zest and walnuts

  3. Let the cranberry mixture cool completely to room temperature

  4. While the cranberry compote is cooling allow the frozen puff pastry to defrost at room temperature

  5. Once the puff pastry has defrosted gently unfold the sheet. Roll the pastry out on a floured surface until the size increases around 25%

  6. Cut the rolled out pastry into a rough square and place over a small plate letting the excess hang over the sides of the plate

  7. Add the cooled cranberry compote in a pile to the center of the plate ensuring the pile is no wider than the wheel of brie

  8. Place brie on top of cranberry compote and gather puff pastry around the cheese to create a parcel. Press the pastry seams together to seal the parcel

  9. Turn the pastry covered brie over so the seams are on the bottom

  10. In a small bowl beat the egg to create an egg wash and brush on the top and sides of the pastry
  11. Cook in a preheated air fryer at 400F for 12 minutes. Serve immediately


Ensure the cranberry compote has cooled before adding to the puff pastry

Compote can be made up to three days in advance and stored in an air tight container in the fridge
