Honey Brie Cups

Honey Brie Cups

Bonjour Juliette!
     What’s new in your neck of the woods?  Just wanted to let you know that these little honey brie cups remind me of our visit to Seine-et-Marne.  Remember the insane laugh attacks we had roaming the streets of France?  What really sticks out in my mind from that trip was your Mom’s Mom making us the honey brie tart, and snickering at us for eating it all.   I had to recreate your grandmother’s delicious afternoon snack tracing my memory bank for the exact taste.  Now we have a flavor to timestamp that point in time for us.  This is my version.   I hope the touch of orange in the honey takes you back to your grandma’s kitchen and  the side splitting giggles we shared.

Ingredients for Honey Brie Cups:

1 – uncooked pie crust (I use pillsbury)

6 – oz. brie cheese

1/8 – cup honey

2 – tablespoons fresh squeezed orange juice


Preheat oven to 425 degrees fahrenheit

Spray a mini muffin pan with a non-stick baking spray. Set to the side.

Unroll pie crust and cut with a star cookie cutter.

Then place little stars in mini muffin pan to form your cup.

Cut your brie cheese into cubes large enough to fit in center.


Then place in the oven for 9 to 12 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

While cups are baking take honey and orange juice and mix well.


Once you remove brie cups from oven,  drizzle orange honey generously over each cup.

Enjoy them on their own or with a bowl of fresh cherries!
