Advance preparation: 2 days 


Light tasting canapés with a hint of sweetness. The recipe calls for apricot jam, but feel free to use any fruit jam or preserves.  


2 X 135 g packages of L’Ancêtre Brie cheese, chilled 

4 eggs 

80 ml (1/3 cup) apricot jam 


Slowly remove cheese rind, then slice cheese. Let slices reach room temperature for 30 minutes. 

Preheat oven to 180˚C (350˚F).  Insert eggs in food processor, whisk them a little. Add cheese slices, salt to taste. Reduce until you obtain a smooth, uniform consistency.  

Butter all 24 miniature muffin tray cavities and fill with batter. Oven bake 10 minutes or until canapés are puffy and golden. 

Retrieve from oven, let cool 5 minutes. Remove canapés from cavities. Then arrange them on a serving platter. Brush each canapé with apricot jam. Then serve immediately. If preparing this recipe in advance, cover thoroughly and refrigerate, then heat in microwave oven 1-2 minutes prior to serving and garnish with jam.
