The original recipe called for puff pastry sheets, but several years ago when my DH was helping by going to the grocery store before company arrived, and bought the pre-baked fillo dough cups/shells instead. I didn't have the time to send him back, so I just went with what we had.
Now I always keep these little pre-baked fillo dough cups/shells in my freezer. They are SO versatile! you can stuff them with this or change up the topping....jam, brown sugar, pepperoni....you are limited only by your imagination.
I use this as a great afternoon/after school snack finger food

Step 1: Step 1 Original Recipe Followd by MY Fast Easy Changes
This is the original recipe I found on the Internet:
2 sheets of puff pastry
1.5 Cups Cranberry sauce
1 (10 oz triangle of Brie Cheese
Preheat oven to 375°
Cut each sheet into 12 squares and place inside mini muffin cups.
Place 1 inch aquare of cheese inside each cup
Top with about 1 Tablespoon of Cranberry Sauce
Bake until edges are brown (about 10 - 15 minutes
Cool slightly (but not completely) before removing
2 - 4 boxes of PRE-BAKED Mini Fillo Shells
1 Wedge Brie Cheese (I try to find the one without the rind)
1 Can of Cranberry sauce
Step 2: Step 2 Method
Remove the fillo shells from the package and arrange on a microwavable plate.
Add about 1 teaspoon of Brie Cheese. spread to edges of the shell if possible
Top with about 1.5 teaspoon of cranberry sauce
Step 3: Step 3 Bake
Microwave for about 15 - 30 seconds (on high) or just until you see the cheese and sauce "melting"
Cool at least 2 minutes before serving.....and even then warn guests not to just pop one in their mouth (ask me how I know)
