Appetizers are my favorite part of a meal and this Cranberry Brie is at the top of the list. It’s the perfect holiday appetizer for any parties on your calendar or your own holiday meals.
Many times appetizers are an overlooked part of a meal but I love to fix a couple of really good appetizers to have for people to snack on while dinner is finishing up. It also helps keep the masses under control if dinner is delayed at all!
Traditionally my go to, stand by appetizer is Roasted Garlic and Artichoke Dip I love this dip and could eat the whole thing myself!!
The other appetizer I will be fixing this year is a new recipe for me, Cranberry Brie. A friend was raving about it on the phone the other day so I decided I needed to give it a try. I especially love this appetizer during the holiday time because of the color and the cranberry. It’s perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.
My friend was right, this cranberry brie is so yummy. Everyone loved it and my husband even ate the leftovers for breakfast the next morning.
Besides the taste, I love how easy this was to put together. It only requires five ingredients and about five minutes to put together:
- Crescent Roll dough. I used the crescent roll sheet rather than the rolls but both will work.
- Whole Cranberry Sauce
- Fresh rosemary
Do I Remove the Rind from the Brie?
The rind is totally edible but I usually scrape off what I can with the tip of a knife or if it has a heavier rind I trim it off .
How to make Cranberry Brie
- Roll out your crescent roll dough onto a parchment covered baking sheet. If you are using the dough for rolls, press the seams together with your finger.
- Bake the dough for 5 minutes at 425 degrees F.
- Cover baked dough with cranberry sauce.
- Lay slices of brie on top and sprinkle with chopped pecans and fresh rosemary.
- Return to oven and bake for 6-8 more minutes or until dough is golden brown and cheese is melted.
- Cut into slices to serve.
