A Simple (But Oh-So-Fancy!) Holiday Appetizer
If your life looks anything like mine does from early November right through to New Year's, you're going to need this!
Running around shopping, decorating, and gathering with family and friends is always great, but I'd rather eliminate the stress of trying to figure out what I should make to put out before big dinners, let alone what to bring to all the cocktail parties, tree trimming get-togethers, and celebrations we're invited to.
These Cranberry & Brie Bites are the perfect party food - they're easy to make, they look sophisticated, fancy, and festive, and they're delicious. While I can't take credit for the recipe - that goes to Nicky of the wonderful Kitchen Sanctuary blog - I do find myself making them again and again.
Nicky actually did a handy (and really cute) video tutorial on exactly how to make the Cranberry Brie Bites here.
- 1 puff pastry sheet
- 4-6 T melted butter
- enough for 20 1" squares brie cheese
- 1 c cranberry sauce or preserves
- 20 small fresh thyme sprigs
Take my word for it and keep the ingredients for these yummy nibbles on hand all holiday season and you'll be good to go, no matter when a celebration pops up!
