But what good is tasty food at a holiday gathering if you don’t have the perfect drinks to serve with it? When I think of holiday entertaining, I always think of delicious appetizers and things like hot apple cider, spiked eggnog, and various cocktails.

 Cranberry Brie Bites are an easy three ingredient appetizer that are perfect for holiday parties. Warm and delicious – everyone will love them!


  • 8 ounces crescent roll dough
  • 4 ounces brie
  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce see link on how to make your own in recipe notes!


  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Prepare a large baking sheet by lining with parchment or a silicone mat.
  • Roll out cresent roll dough into a single sheet, ensuring all seams have been pinched together for a tight seal, into a shape that is about 12″ long and 8″ wide. Cut dough into 24 equal sized squares using a 6×4 grid.
  • To prepare bites, add a small cube of brie (about one cubic centimeter in size) and a small scoop of cranberry sauce (about 1/2 teaspoon) to the center of each square of dough. Bring opposite corners of the dough to the center and pinch in the middle.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 11-13 minutes, or until golden brown. The cheese may melt out of some, but you can easily scoop it back in when the appetizers or hot, or serve as is. They will be eaten either way!

    Delicious! Any tips on best way to store them if I make them same day but won’t be serving them for a few hours? Do they need to be refrigerated?

    1. They’re definitely best if served immediately but you can make them earlier in the day and I think they’d be fine without refrigeration for a few hours. Any longer I would refrigerate and then reheat to take the chill out before serving.
