Cranberry Brie Bites

Cranberry Brie Bites are an easy 4-ingredient appetizer for your holiday party. Plus they taste amazing!
Servings 48 tarts


  • 2 tubes refrigerated Pillsbury Crescents®
  • 8 oz Brie cheese, rind removed
  • 1 (14oz) can whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces/chopped pecans


  • Unroll one tube of Pillsbury Crescents® into one long rectangle. Use a rolling pin to roll the seams together and lengthen the dough a little bit. Cut 24 squares with a pizza cutter.
  • Place one square inside each cup of a mini muffin pan. It’s okay if some of the seams come apart, they will most likely cook together. They don’t have to touch the bottom either. I like to leave a little bit of the dough hanging out of the cup for easy removal after baking.
  • Remove any rind from the Brie cheese and cut 48 square-ish pieces. Place a piece of cheese in the center of each crescent cup. Save the remaining 24 pieces for the second tube of crescent dough.
  • Spoon some whole cranberry sauce on top of the Brie. Maybe a rounded teaspoonful. You don’t have to be exact, but don’t overfill them.
  • Top the cranberry sauce with chopped pecan pieces, saving half for the second batch of Cranberry Brie Bites.
  • Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden brown. Serve immediately using a spoon to remove the cups from their mold. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
