I love little bites, appetizers, and dips. They’re my favorite food for the holidays. I can try a little bit of everything and mini versions of food are always more fun. That’s why I’m loving these Apple-Cranberry & Brie Bites. You can polish one off in 3 or 4 bites, they’re cheesy, sweet, and buttery. The perfect holiday bite.
When I got the chance to bake with Lucky Leaf for the holidays, I couldn’t say no. I had so much fun coming up with my Lemon-Raspberry Mousse Pie in a Jar over the summer, I wanted another chance to put a fun spin on Lucky Leaf pie filling.
I’m kind of obsessed with Brie. When I cracked open the box from Lucky Leaf and saw the Apple-Cranberry pie filling, I knew exactly what I wanted to make. Apples & brie is one of my favorite combinations, and these little bites are one of the best ways I’ve had them together. If you like apples & brie as much as me, check out my Sun-Dried Tomato & Pesto Brie en Croute – it shouldn’t work, but it totally does!

Two Years Ago: Turkey Cookies
- 1 can refrigerated crescent rolls (8 crescents)
- 2 to 3 ounces double cream brie, rind removed and cut into 8 pieces
- 1/2 cup Lucky Leaf Apple-Cranberry pie filling
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a Sil-Pat or parchment paper.
- Unroll crescents into 4 large rectangles. Pinch together perforated seams running down the middle of the rectangles. Cut each rectangle into 2 squares.
- Place one piece of brie in the center of each square. Top cheese with 1 tablespoon of Lucky Leaf apple-cranberry pie filling.
- Bring corners of the crescents together to the middle of the square, over the cheese, and pinch together. Pinch together the open edges to make a square packet. Transfer brie bites to prepared baking sheet.
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until crescents are golden brown. Bites may open slightly along the edges, but filling will stay inside. Serve warm of at room temperature.
