I love entertaining, especially around the holidays. But one thing I hate doing is stressing over cooking. Of course, I want my guests to feel welcome but I don’t feel like I have to cook a full dinner for them to do that. That’s mostly why we enjoy having our friends over after dinner time. That way, I can put out a few snacks and we can really focus on the drinks!
For the past few years, my go-to crowd-pleasing holiday snack has been a baked brie. My friend Tiffany, showed me how to make this years ago and I have been hooked ever since. Your friends will think you spent hours making it when in actuality it only takes a few minutes to put it together! Easy Peasy! You also know it’s a winner when it’s the first appetizer to go at the party.
Give it a try this holiday season and let me know what you think!
Baked Holiday Brie Recipe
Roll out crescent roll sheet and press the perforated cuts together. Chop your brie into cubes and place in the center of the sheet of dough. Then place raspberries, rosemary and drizzle raspberry vinaigrette over top. Fold up the edges like a present to close it and then flip over so the other side is smooth. With the second roll of dough, cut a few strips out to make your bow. Egg wash your entire brie package and then place your strips over top to resemble a cross. Then bend your smaller pieces to create a bow shape and use the egg wash as the glue to hold it all together. Sprinkle with salt and chopped rosemary and pop in the oven for 20-25 mins at 375 or until golden brown.
When finished, remove from oven, place on a gorgeous serving platter. Decorate the platter with assorted crackers, raspberries, and sprigs of rosemary. Serve and enjoy!
- 2 rolls of Pillsbury Crescent dough
