Expert Tips

Be sure to choose the heaviest mandarins, these will be the juiciest.

If you ask me what my favorite fruit is, I don’t think twice about it because I know it’s the mandarin. It has a sweet delicious flavor and I love the tanginess. I love its beautiful orange color and the aroma that fills the room. My family makes fun of me because I love snacks that I can pick at. In my cooking classes, Sexy Chef, my students always ask me to show them simple snack recipes for get-togethers and parties. If you want to prepare an out-of-this-world snack, then you’re in the right place. Today I want to share a recipe for little dough cups filled with mandarin compote, pieces of brie and toasted nuts.

Pick mandarins with smooth skin, the texture will be better in the final product.

You can buy mandarins and keep them refrigerated for up to two week. Never freeze them.

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Cover a mini cupcake tin in cooking spray.
  • 2 Divide each biscuit into three layers horizontally. Insert each layer or disk into each greased cupcake opening. Using your fingers to push the dough to the bottom and cover the sides.
  • 3 Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • 4 While the biscuits in the oven, prepare the sauce. Peel the mandarins, remove the fibers, white parts and seeds. Place mandarins in a small saucepan, along with water, sugar and cinnamon. Stir.
  • 5 Let simmer for 10 minutes, until you have thick syrup and the mandarins are soft. If you want you can add tangerine or orange liqueur.
  • 6 In a medium pan, evenly sprinkle bits of chopped nuts, and briefly sauté until they are toasted.
  • 7 Carefully remove the biscuits from the oven and use the end of a wooden spoon to create an opening in the center. Bake for 6-8 minutes longer.
  • 8 Remove from the oven and fill the hole of each biscuit with 1/2 teaspoon mandarin sauce, a slice of Brie cheese, a slice of mandarin and sprinkle with nuts. Put it back in the oven for 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
  • 9 Remove from oven, place on a serving platter and sprinkle with fresh chives.
