Keto Brie Cranberry Cupsย ๐Ÿง€

Nice ‘N Festive!ย ๐ŸŽ„

These keto brie cranberry cups make for one killer holiday entree. Think oozing brie, topped with our deliciously sweet and tangy cranberry relish, crunchy pecans, and aromatic rosemary. All wrapped up in one killer (and easy peasy!) dough.

And at roughly 3g net carbs a pop, we’re very much in love.

So whether you serve them solo, or atop a bed of arugula (with a drizzle of balsamic!), these are bound to become a holiday favorite.

The Dough

You might (or not!) be surprised to hear that we use our grain-free tortilla dough here…! Though given that it makes killer crackers and flatbreads too, it might not be that surprising.

Fact is, depending how thin you roll it out (or press it down), you’ll either end up with a crackers & brie or a bread & brie sorta thing. So get it nice and thin, almost translucent, to yield a superย crispy cracker. Or leave it a bit thicker for a more a more ‘bread-y’ situation.

Or, alternatively, whip these guys up with our our suuuper flakey keto cream cheese pie crustย for a simpler take on our baked brie. It’s a win-win either way.

The Flours

We like a mixture of super fine almond flour and coconut flour best. Add a touch of xanthan gum and baking powder, and weโ€™re golden.

In terms of brands, for the almond either Anthonyโ€™sย or WellBees work great. Both are super fine grinds. And for the coconut, we always favor Anthonyโ€™s.

No substituting flours here and the xanthan gum is absolutely necessary. And, if possible, weigh your ingredients for consistent results.

Make Aheadย โฐ

Weโ€™re fairly keen on meal prepping ahead of time, particularly if entertaining. And these keto brie cranberry cups are ideal when having guests over.

Simply assemble the cups a day before, wrap the muffin tray with cling film, and bake straight from the fridge as needed.

These keto brie cranberry cups make for one killer holiday entree. Think oozing brie, topped with our deliciously sweet and tangy cranberry relish, crunchy pecans, and aromatic rosemary. All wrapped up in one killer (and easy peasy!) dough.

Ingredients

For the dough:

For the keto brie cranberry filling

  • 1 5-inch wheel brie cheese diced
  • 40 g roughly chopped pecans
  • 1 tablespoon very finely minced rosemary
  • 100 g keto cranberry relish or cranberry sauce of choice

To serve (optional):

Instructions

For the dough:

  1. Add almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, baking powder and salt to food processor. Pulse until thoroughly combined. 

  2. Pour in apple cider vinegar with the food processor running. Once it has distributed evenly, pour in the egg. Followed by the water. Stop the food processor once the dough forms into a ball. The dough will be sticky to touch.

  3. Wrap dough in cling film and knead it through the plastic for a minute or two. Think of it a bit like a stress ball. Allow dough to rest for 10 minutes (and up to two days in the fridge). 

  4. Break the dough into eight 1โ€ balls (26g a piece). Roll out between two sheets of parchment or waxed paper with a rolling pin or using a tortilla press. If fuzzy about presentation, trim edges. The dough recipe (inevitably) makes a bit extra, so we suggest turning it into crackers. 

  5. Preheat oven to 350ยฐF/180ยฐC. 

  6. Fit pastry rounds onto a muffin tray. Fill with brie, pecans, rosemary, cranberry relish, and brie again. Finish off with freshly ground black pepper to taste. 

  7. Bake for 10-16 minutes (depending on thickness), until pastry is golden and cheese is fully melted. Keep an eye on them, as coconut flour has the tendency to suddenly brown very quickly! Serve right away. 

  8. These guys are best served warm and straight from the oven, but they also do re-warm quite well. 

  9. Note that you can assemble the cups a day before, wrap the muffin tray with cling film, and bake straight from the fridge as needed. 

Recipe Notes

Note that the dough yields enough for 8-10 cups (depending on thickness). We like these guys medium thickness, so we get 8. But for a totally crispy dough, get it suuuper thin! For practical reasons we make 6 medium sized cups, and use the rest of the dough for crackers. Unfortunately (or fortunately?!) the recipe for the dough cannot be scaled down.ย 

Please note that nutrition facts below are estimated for the dough only. Addย 1g net carb/cup for our keto cranberry relish (see full nutrition info for the cranberry relish here).ย 

So a fairly accurate estimate would be 3-3.5g net carbs per brie & cranberry cup.ย
