INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, mix cranberries, water, sugar, rosemary, spices and vanilla extract. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring frequently.

Lower heat when berries begin to “pop”. Remove star anise and discard.

Mash the berries and simmer on low heat for 5 minutes.

Stir in pecans. Remove from heat, and let mixture cool.

Cut each Brie cheese wheel into 12 (1 inch) cubes for a total of 24 cubes.

Assemble tarts:
Place 1 phyllo cup into each well of a mini muffin pan.

Fill each phyllo cup with one Brie cube. Bake the tarts 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top each tart with 1 teaspoon of the cranberry mixture. Serve warm.
