Baked brie is a surefire way to impress absolutely anybody. The creamy cheese is so versatile and can please so many tastes.
This recipe for Cranberry Crescent Baked Brie is a great winter classic. And it doesn't get much easier than this, with only 4 ingredients and minimal preparation. All you need to do is wrap your brie in crescent roll dough, add some cranberry sauce, brush with egg wash for some color and bake! Serve this with crackers for a delicious side (or meal - we won't judge!).
- 1 can Pillsbury crescent rolls
- 1/4 cup cranberry sauce
- 1 round Brie cheese
- 1 egg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk egg in a small bowl and set aside.
Gently tear apart the crescent dough so that 4 crescent rolls form a square. Press the perforations together so they don't tear apart and form one square of dough.
Lay the dough out on a sheet of parchment paper. Put about 1/4 cup of cranberry sauce in the middle of the dough. Place the brie round on top of the cranberry sauce. Top the brie with more cranberries.
Tear apart a rectangle of 2 crescent rolls and lay them over on top of the cranberries on top of the brie. Fold the rest of the dough up and around the brie so it is encased in the dough.
Brush the tops and sides of the dough with the egg.
Place the parchment paper and brie on a baking sheet. Bake for at least 30 minutes, watching closely to make sure that the dough cooks through but doesn't burn. It should be a nice dark brown once done.
Allow the brie to cool for 15 minutes before serving.
