Cut Brie into one-half- inch squares, with fingertips make a little divit in the cubes to make for super easy filling of the pepper jelly, place cheese cubes on large platter, set in the freezer while thawing pastry at room temperature for 30 minutes.
When pasty is thawed unfold, lightly remove creases with a rolling pin.
Cut each sheet into fourths, cut each of the fourths in half.
Cut each piece in half again to make for 16 even squares of dough per sheet.
Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees (ovens vary in mine a touch lower)
Lightly mist mini-muffin tin with cooking spray, fit a square of dough into each cup, the pointed ends extending straight up.
Remove cheese cubes from the freezer, place a cube of cheese into each dough-lined cup, topping with 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper jelly.
Bake at 400 for 10- 15 minutes until golden brown.
These are also a great make ahead, so much so I purchased extra mini pans. Prepare and freeze, when needed thaw and bake according to instructions,they are every bit as good as when baked fresh.
