Easy Appetizer-Cranberry Brie Bites

Updated: Jan 8

These easy to make little appetizers are always a crowd pleaser.

I just made them for a "Holiday Happy Hour" that I hosted this past weekend and they were gone as quickly as I could plate them! Something about the flaky crust with the warm gooey brie and the sweet cranberry with just a hint of fresh rosemary flavor - major yum! I use the sweet and spicy pecans from Trader Joe's for an extra pop of flavor. Make them for a party or just to enjoy at home.

all-purpose flour

(for dusting the cutting board)

1 8oz. tube crescent dough

1 8oz. wheel of brie cheese

1 cup whole cranberry sauce fresh rosemary sprigs a/o chopped pecans


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.

2. Sprinkle flour onto your work area, then roll out the crescent dough and pinch the seams


3. Cut the crescent roll dough into 24 equal-sized squares. Place each square into a muffin tin slot.

4. Cut the brie into 24 pieces and place them inside the crescent dough squares.

5. Top each with a spoonful of cranberry sauce and a little sprig of rosemary, and/or a few chopped pecans.

6. Bake until the crescent dough is a light golden brown (about 15 minutes). They are best when served warm while the brie cheese is warm and gooey. Enjoy!

Note: Some folks like to cut off the rind on the brie. This isn't necessary with brie, but feel free to do so if that's your preference.

Also - be sure to always spray your muffin tin with nonstick spray, I ruined one by not doing so and had to replace it! Did you know there are silicone muffin tins available? I'll bet they would be less likely to have food stick to them. Check it out at
