Holiday Brie Bites brie bites

Lovely Lily and I "may" have tried out some #holiday #appetizers a week or so ago before Christmas to make sure they would be passable for our guests. I think the answer is "yes!" #cheeselady

You can whip these up for guests with only a handful of ingredients:
  • Crescent roll dough
  • Brie
  • Dried cranberries
  • Pistachios
  • Fresh rosemary
  • Kosher salt & large grind black pepper
  • Honey
  • Pomegranate seeds 
Preheat oven to 375F.
Prepare crescent dough.  Roll out without separating at perforations.  Divide into eight pieces with a pizza cutter or knife.  Add a piece of Brie, sprinkle it with dried cranberries and chopped pistachios.  Don't add too much or your dough won't close.

Close dough and form bundles.  Sprinkle the dough with kosher salt and a large grind black pepper.  Chop rosemary and sprinkle over the dough.  
Bake on parchment paper as directed for dough - approximately 14 - 15 minutes.  As soon as Brie bites come out of the oven, drizzle with warm honey and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds.  Arrange on a platter and serve warm while the cheese is melty.  :)  Garnish the plate with additional rosemary.
These are just perfect for a cocktail or dinner party.  Flaky crescent dough, warm oozy cheese, chewy cranberries, crunchy pistachios, the herbal notes of the rosemary, sweetness of the honey and a fresh pop of juiciness from the pomegrante seeds. 

I recipe using a can of crescent dough and a "triangle" of Brie makes 8 Brie Bites.
