Baked Brie Muffins

These Brie Muffins are paraaaa, paraaaa, paradise!

I got the idea when I was cleaning my mini muffin tin after making peanut butter cups.  I was assigned to bring appetizers to a Thanksgiving dinner and was thinking about what to bring.  Cheese is ALWAYS on my mind, and while I was scrubbing away, I thought about using the tin to make miniature baked bries.

These are the ingredients you’ll need:

Crescent roll dough

Brie (I used the cylinder shaped ones so they’re already in the correct shape)

Fruit preserves/jam (I used raspberry, which seems to be everyone’s favorite, and orange fig)

Flour

Note: To fill the whole tray, I used two cans of crescent dough and two rolls of brie.

 

 

Here’s what you do:

Preheat oven to 350.

Cut the brie into 1-2 inch thick chunks.

Flour your countertop and a rolling pin.  Layout the crescent roll dough and roll it, forming it to one giant square.

Then cut into individual small squares.  Line each muffin tin with a dough square.  Insert a chunk of cheese, top it with jam, and wrap the remaining dough over the top.

Brian’s inner iron chef came out and decided to fancy up the appearance.  He twisted the dough on top rather than just folding it over.  I have to admit, his turned our prettier.

Pop them in the oven for about 10-15 minutes.

Since I made these for Thanksgiving, I’ve made them two other times.  My family has been raving about them.  So, I’m making them again tomorrow for Christmas Eve.  They’re the perfect winter finger food.  Now add a glass of wine along with them… now it’s really paradise!

I think chocolate and cheese should be their own food group. Or, at least I treat them as if they are. To say I like wine is an understatement.
