An Easy Dessert

These Apple and Cranberry Brie Bites are such a breeze to put together. Only 10 mins prep and 4 ingredients. For extra ease I’ve gone for store bought pastry and filling. It all comes together in 30 mins from pantry to table and they look great! The puff pastry does all the work and makes them look beautiful and time consuming!

Perfect for Thanksgiving 

Wouldn’t these look so pretty as a thanksgiving dessert or appetizer? They are a great mix of sweet and slightly savory, so you can whip up a batch and choose to have them before or after the main course.  Yhey would taste especially good with my favorite thanksgiving cocktail, apple pie sangria :)

Can I make these ahead of time?

Yes! Just fully assemble the Apple and Cranberry Brie Bites in the muffin pan, and refrigerate them unbaked for up to 3 days before baking. You can also fully bake and freeze these bites for up to 2 months. See notes on this above.

To freeze, bake the Brie bites as directed and let cool completely. Then arrange the bites in a single layer on a baking sheet, and place in the freezer until solid. Store the frozen bites in a single layer in an airtight freezer-safe storage container or ziptop bag for up to 2 months. When ready to serve, reheat directly from frozen in a 375 degree F oven until hot.
