FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Puff pastry dough can be substituted for the crescent roll dough.
No it is not necessary. It is perfectly okay to eat. Some people do not like the texture of the rind so you can cut it off if you prefer.
I love the cranberry sauce with brie because of the contrast in flavors, but you can top with blueberry jam, raspberry, strawberry or orange marmalade. Also try topping with toasted walnuts and pecans instead of the rosemary.
Yes. I think they are best reheated in an air fryer or the oven. That way the crescent roll dough doesn’t become too soft. Heat up just long enough for the center to get warm.
Yes. These can be frozen after they’ve been cooked. You need to wrap them very well to prevent against freezer burn then place in a freezer-safe container or bag. Defrost in the refrigerator, then reheat in the oven or an air fryer.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)

HOW TO MAKE CRANBERRY BRIE BITES:
Preheat oven to 375°F degrees. Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Spread a little flour out onto your counter. Then roll out crescent dough. If using crescent rolls rather than the crescent roll dough sheet, be sure to pinch the seams together to make one sheet.
Cut crescent roll dough into 24 equal-sized squares.
Place squares into muffin tin slots.
Cut brie into small pieces and place inside the crescent dough squares.
Top with a generous spoonful of cranberry sauce.
Finally, top each one with a little sprig of rosemary.
Bake until the crescent dough is a light golden brown (about 15 minutes).
Then serve warm!

Easy peasy-love it. I did half per the recipe and topped the other half batch with candied jalapenos (Cowboy Candy) OMG! delish!
So good!!! Made these last year for the first time. This will be now added to our menu every year.
I do however use the crescent sheets. Much easier than pinching the seams to hold it together.
I’m wondering if chilling the brie before baking would allow the dough to fully cook without overmelting the cheese…? I will try it
These came out good. Just wondering what would you recommend if I wanted it sweeter or saltier?
Hi for sweetness use a sweeter filling like any berry preserves or better yet drizzle honey over them after baked. Or add a small piece of salty meat like prociutto or ham before baking

Can I bake these at a lower temperature?! I have a prime rib in the oven set to 325? May take a little longer than 15 min but is that okay?
Hi Mercedes, yes you could. But you are right, they will take a bit longer to make sure the middle isn’t doughy. 🙂
Super delicious and so easy and fast to make! I made them a few times now over the holidays and they were always the star of the appetizers! We love it!
Thank you so very much Bea!
