Preheat oven to 400'F.

Divide pastry into 9 squares and place each square into the moulds of a cupcake pan, pushing down the centers slightly. Cut brie into 9 equal cubes (around 1" cubes). Place one cube of cheese into the center of each puff pastry and lightly press the tips of the square to the center to create a parcel shape. Bake for 10 minutes, or until puff pastry is golden brown and the brie is melted. Remove from oven and top each parcel with 1 teaspoon of apricot jam and sprinkle with pecans & thyme. Serve warm.
