Brie and Jam Crescent Roll Bites

Brie and Jam Crescent Roll Bites

A few days ago, I was making a “small plates” style dinner for my wife and I, and was inspired to make some brie as an appetizer. A friend of ours had told us about a recipe she had made, involving wrapping crescent rolls around Brie and jam. After looking at the recipe, I decided to try my own variation on it by making individual crescent rolls stuffed with Brie and jam, rather than one big serving. And since this was a new recipe for me, it was a perfect chance to add another entry into my 50 in 15 Challenge.

I have to admit, the end result was nothing short of phenomenal. These bad boys are easy to make, and are perfectly creamy and utterly delicious. They’re a perfect appetizer for a meal, offering a creamy and sweet addition to the menu. Trust me when I say that you really need to make these for yourself — you’ll be glad you did!

Ingredients

  • 1 package Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • 4-6 oz. Brie, divided into 8 portions
  • Jam (your choice of flavor)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Unroll the crescent rolls, per package directions.
  3. At the wide base of each crescent roll, place a portion of Brie and a tbsp. of jam, leaving about 1/2″ space from the bottom and sides of the roll.
  4. Carefully roll up the crescent roll, folding and pinching the sides around the cheese and jam to ensure they stay inside the crescent roll. If necessary, pinch up the sides more after rolling up each one to further ensure the fillings stay inside.
  5. Place the crescent rolls on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Notes

The one main thing to note is to make sure you pinch up the sides of the crescent rolls when you are folding/rolling them up, so the jam and cheese don’t seep out too much. Other than that, it’s simply a matter of choosing what kind of jam you want to use, and how many of these you want to make. I think it’s safe to say that more is definitely better!

Bon Appétit!
