Cranberry Brie Bites

Cranberry Brie Bites

One of the reasons I love the holidays is because I love entertaining. I love making food and sharing it with others. I love enjoying the time with friends and family. I find that if I am preparing a whole meal then I don’t spend a lot of time on appetizers. Usually, I just serve some cheese, fruit and nuts. And if I am having a party where I only serve finger foods, then I want to prepare appetizers that are quick and easy. These cranberry brie bites are the perfect little appetizer to serve at your next dinner party or holiday event. They require minimal prep and cook time. I highly recommend using the apple cranberry sauce that I posted earlier this week.

Save Recipe



  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cut puff pastry sheets into approximately 3 inch squares and place into mini muffin tins, pressing them into the shape of the muffin tin. Place a 1-inch slice of brie in the center of each pastry and top with 1 tablespoon cranberry sauce. Bake 10 minutes, or until pastry corners are toasted light brown. Let cool 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with pistachios just before serving, if desired.

    These look great Ashley! I normally make Raspberry Brie Bites, but the cranberry sauce is such a fun and festive twist.

    Do these re-heat well? I’m thinking of making them tonight and warming them up at our potluck tomorrow.

    • Ashley

      Hi Jen! Since they only take 10 minutes to bake, I would just make them fresh and try not to re-heat.

    Are these only good warm or are they good for awhile?

    • Ashley

      Lori, I would serve them warm out of the oven, but they will be good for a little while even if not warm.
