– Be sure to use a Brie wheel and not a brie wedge. If you’re baking it for just two, you could use a a smaller wheel of Brie or the wedge. – If you cannot access cranberries to make the cranberry filling, you could just bake the cheese with your puff pastry and do the almond and honey drizzle. – In place of cranberry sauce, you could fill with another homemade fruit filling. – When rolling the pastry out, it may rip a bit. Simply adjust it with your fingertips.
