I’m a total appetizer girl. One of my very favorite meals of the year is our annual New Year’s dinner when I gather with my family and we all just make appetizers.

But when it comes to entertaining or making multiple appetizers, you need something easy. And fast. And tasty.

These Crescent Raspberry Brie Bites only take 3 ingredients and less than 30 minutes.

You might want to make 2 batches, though – because these babies go fast!

Crescent Wrapped Baked Brie

Looking for a tempting appetizer to share with holiday guests or evening soirée? Awesome! This Crescent Wrapped Brie is decadence, mixed with elegance and lots of simplicity. When things are easy this time of year it gives you more time to hit the slopes, shop for that perfect cocktail dress & write a letter to Santa…I was asked by Pillsbury to have fun with a few of their Hero Holiday Recipes. This Crescent Wrapped Brie caught my eye. My kids had fun with the dough too!

I added some festive cutouts to make it give it more holiday flair. Egg wash assures a crisp, golden brown crust.

To make it more colorful and festive I added ruby red dried cranberries and sparkly golden raisins. I also drizzled pure maple syrup over the top.

The sweet, savory, salty, buttery & creamy flavors merge together perfectly. Your guests will grab this & it will be gone before you know it! I even caught my husband nibbling on some for breakfast!

How to Make Mini Baked Brie Roll Ups

This really could not get any easier.

Place a big piece of brie onto the long end of a crescent dough triangle, tuck in the sides and roll up. Then brush the tops with egg wash so they turn shiny and golden brown after baking. We also add a pecan half and some sea salt on top before baking — I love the way it looks.

The rolls take about 15 minutes to bake and are perfect for parties or a side dish. The brie might escape a little during baking — that’s okay, they still taste amazing. By the way, brie isn’t the only choice when it comes to the filling. Most cheeses will work, in fact, a mixture of feta cheese and olives would be amazing.

There were so many great dishes at our event! My friend Maya from Pugs and Paprika made these delicious Parmesan Sausage Cups, Whitney of Fabulous in Fayette made a savory Sriracha Caesar Salad with homemade croutons, and my foodie friend Leela from Lex Eats made these perfectly soft and chewy White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies….of which I ate about 5 haha. Not only was the food amazing, but the holiday decor and other festive elements really brought this entire event together beautifully! Stay tuned for my full blog post on the entire event coming this week!

Thank you to Jeptha Creed in Louisville, KY for hosting our holiday event.
