Easy Cranberry Brie Bites
Using only 4 ingredients, you can easily and quickly whip up an easy cranberry appetizer at your convenience. Cranberry sauce is available year round in many grocery stores, so even if it’s not cranberry season, you can still enjoy some delicious cranberry taste.
While this is completely optional, these bites also taste good if you add a few pieces of chopped walnuts or pecans on top too. Just don’t overdo it. It’s such a yummy starter!
And just in case cranberry isn’t your thing, you can also make this substituting a delicious jam in the flavor of your choice. I really like making it with blackberry jam too! I like to use the jam that has the whole fruit included rather than the kind that is super smooth. Using the whole fruit jam offers a nicer texture.
Our cranberry brie bites are such a delicious, yet quick and easy appetizer to make. They are perfect for just about any occasion. #recipe #brie #appetizersClick to tweet
Ingredients you need to make Cranberry Brie Bites
- Wheel of Brie cheese
- Can of crescent sheets (or crescent dough)
- Can whole cranberry sauce
- Fresh rosemary
How to make the Cranberry Brie Bites
- Lightly flour a countertop.
- Roll out a sheet of crescent dough. If you can’t find the whole sheets, you can use the crescent rolls, just pinch the perforated lines to make them whole.
- Using a knife or pizza cutter, slice into 12 pieces. If using a mini muffin tin for tiny bites, cut the dough into 24 pieces.
- Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Put each square of dough into the pan making sure that it forms a bit of a bowl.
- Next, slice your cheese into 12 pieces. I cut the rind off mine, but you can leave it on if you wish. It is edible and a bit of personal preference! If using the mini pan, cut each slice in half.
- Add one slice of cheese into each dough ‘bowl’.
- Open a can of whole cranberry sauce. Spoon some on top of each piece of cheese.
- Lastly, lay a bit of fresh rosemary on top of each one.
- Bake in the oven at 375 for 12-15 minutes.
