Tips

  • Using a nonstick muffin tin is best to ensure that these delicate pie bites wont stick in the tin.
  • It is best to use a dull dinner knife to gently pry these bites out of the pan.
  • Be sure to allow these to cool before eating! These are scorching hot inside when they come out of the oven.
  • If a biscuit cutter is not available, a glass works just as well to cut the rounds from the dough.
  • Let the dough sit out to soften for 10 minutes or so before unrolling.

FAQs

Can these mini pies be made in advance?

Yes they can be made in advance. Just wait for them to cool, then store in a sealed container in a refrigerator. To take the chill off and re-crisp the crust, it is best to use an air fryer.

Can blueberry brie bites be frozen?

Yes. Put in a sealed container in a single layer and freeze for up to 2 weeks. Thaw at room temperature for a couple hours or in a refrigerator overnight.

What cheese can be substituted for the brie?

If you are not a fan of brie or if it is not available, white cheddar cheese or fontina can be substituted. Cream cheese could be used as well.

Ingredients
  

  • 5 oz fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup see Notes
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp fresh orange zest
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1 pkg prepared rolled pie dough (2 rolls per package) such as Pillsbury
  • 4 oz brie, rind removed and cubed see Notes
  • cooking spray

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray the tins of a nonstick mini muffin pan (see Notes) with cooking spray.
  • In a small saucepan, add the blueberries, syrup, cinnamon, orange zest, and salt. Simmer, stirring regularly, until the blueberries are softened. Remove from the heat.
  • Use a 3-inch biscuit cutter to cut 12 rounds from the dough. Alternatively, a ~3-inch wide glass can be used. Gently press each round into a mini muffin tin.
  • Put a bite of brie into each pie shell. Top each with blueberries (see Notes) taking care not to overfill (note, then filling will bubble up a bit while cooking).
  • Bake at 425°F for 20-25 minutes until pie shells are golden crisp.
  • Once cool enough to handle, use a dinner knife to gently lift the pie bites from the muffin pan.

Notes

For the syrup, I used blueberry maple syrup for even more blueberry flavor.
Don’t be shy with the brie! Brie is very mild and if too little is used, it will be overwhelmed by the blueberries.
Using a nonstick muffin tin ensures these bites won’t stick. then we use cooking spray too as extra insurance against stickage.
When spooning the blueberries into the pie shells, spoon them from the saucepan in such a way so as to drain as much liquid off as possible. Too much liquid will bubble over and can make these pie bites hard to remove from the pan after cooking.
