Cranberry Raspberry Brie Bites appetizers:
These bite-sized holiday appetizers won’t spoil the appetite, are fairly healthy… and delicious! Puff Pastry (here is a link to an organic brand) makes them so easy and Brie Cheese (find out more about Brie cheese here) gives them some nutritional substance. These little yums have Only five ingredients and go together easily.
Cranberry Raspberry Brie Bites can be served warm or cold or even the next day! Once baked and cooled these are not messy! They are quite easily served from a tray as finger food.
I made 24 of these for my husband and I at his request. He ate the whole tray by himself (well I might have had a few). These are SO addicting. If you love cranberry-raspberry flavor, with a hint of brie and thyme, this easy appetizer recipe is for you, and your next winter holiday party. To make these a large crowd appetizers simply double the batch.
NOTES on the Crust:
I have used sheets of Puff Pastry in this recipe, NOT Phyllo Dough. This recipe does not work with sheets of phyllo dough. Please use puff pastry sheets for a soft, pillowy, doughy crust.
If you prefer a really easy, crispy crust, try Frozen mini Fillo Cups. See the crust they make at my Low Carb Chorizo Spinach Filo Cup Appetizers post and I used them in our tutorial video for this recipe. SO easy. Pop them in the mini muffin pans, fill them and bake! Cranberry raspberry brie bites are delicious with either crust. Perfect party finger food.
These party appetizers are ready in a half hour straight out of the oven. Serve them as soon as they are cool enough to eat without burning your mouth. These are also good at room temperature and are food safe for several hours.
I have made Cranberry Raspberry Brie Bites several times. Every time they are immediately devoured. These are great holiday party appetizers.
TIP: Don’t overdo the brie. These brie bites may boil over in the oven if you make the balls too large. Keep the brie balls about the size you see pictured in the recipe card and video for best results. I recommend putting a baking sheet under them (next rack down) to catch the drips or your smoke alarm may come to the party!
