Baked Brie Bites Ingredients
- Crescent Rolls: Purchase a tube of crescent rolls or a crescent dough sheet.
- Brie: One wheel of brie is required.
- Jam: For these brie nibbles, I used this sugar plum jam. The luscious plums have a citrus and spice flavor that complements the brie well. You may use whichever jam you choose!
- Nuts: Chop a quarter cup of pecans.
How to Make Baked Brie Bites
- Crescent Dough: Roll out the crescent dough on a lightly floured board. If you’re using rolls, squeeze the seams together. Cut the dough into 24 pieces and set them in a tiny muffin tin that has been oiled.
- Assemble the Bites: Cut the brie into small pieces and insert them into the dough. Add a half teaspoon of jam and chopped pecans on top.
- Bake the brie bits for 12 to 15 minutes at 350°F.
Do you remove the peel from the brie before baking it?
Yes, the rind of the brie may be left on. It is not necessary to remove it before cutting the cheese.
- Jam: These baked brie nibbles would also be delicious with raspberry, strawberry, or fig jam.
- Cranberry: Cranberry sauce can be used in place of jam.
- Nuts: Swap pecans for walnuts in the nut section.
- Herbs: Sprinkle with fresh rosemary or thyme leaves.
How to Prep
If you’re presenting these brie nibbles at a party, you may make them a day ahead of time.
- Refrigerate the muffin tray covered with foil.
- Remove the tray from the refrigerator the day before your event and preheat the oven.
- Then bake according to package directions and serve warm.
If you have leftover appetizers, keep them in the fridge for up to four days before reheating in the microwave.
