ServesMakes: 12 servings
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
IngredientsCranberry Sauce (makes extra for serving on the side)
6 ounces (170 g) fresh or frozen cranberries
Juice of ½ orange (optional, or add additional ¼ cup water if not using orange juice)
¾ cup (180 ml) water
½ cup (90 g) Sola sweetener or your favorite granulated sweetener*
Zest of ½ orange
1 cinnamon stick (optional)
8 ounces (225 g) Brie cheese, rind removed, diced
12 slices prosciutto
Directions1. Preheat the oven to 350F/180C. Make the cranberry Sauce: place the cranberries, orange juice, water, and Sola sweetener into a large saucepan over medium heat.
2. Bring the liquid to a boil, then add the orange zest and cinnamon stick, and simmer the mixture over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, until it reaches a thick, jam-like consistency. Cool the mixture and serve at room temperature. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
3. Prepare the prosciutto cups: using a non-stick, mini muffin pan, wrap 1 slice of prosciutto per cup into 12 cavities of the mini muffin pan. Place into the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
4. Place a small amount of the prepared cranberry sauce into each prosciutto cup, followed by Brie and then more cranberry sauce on top. Place into the oven and bake for a further 5 minutes until the Brie is melted.
5. Remove from the oven and serve immediately. The prosciutto cups can be made in advance up to stage 4 and placed in the refrigerator for up to 2 days before serving. Simply add a couple more minutes of baking time to get the cheese nice and melty.
