Quick and Easy Appetizer

Don’t you just love having something on hand you can pull from the freezer and make for guests or for a party? I sure do…plus this is something you can make ahead. Gotta love it!

I also like trying different cheeses with this appetizer. Not everyone loves Bri so try any of your favorite cheeses and make it your own.

Ingredients:

1- 8 oz sheet croissant dough

4 oz brie cheese, cut into cubes

3 tbsp cranberry rasins, finely chopped

3 tbsp. pistachios, finely chopped

1 tbsp. rosemary, finely chopped, some for garnish

1 egg, beaten

1 tsp sea salt

1/4 cup pomegranate seeds

honey for garnish

rosemary

Directions: Preheat oven 375

  1. Roll out croissant dough onto a lightly floured area. Should be 8×12 size or so.
  2. Cut dough into squares making 24 squares. Using a pizza cutter cut 4 lines down 8″ side, and 6 lines down 12″side making 24 squares.
  3. Place brie cubes in each square. Mix pistachios and cranberries into a bowl and sprinkle on top of brie. Sprinkle a tinge of rosemary on top.
  4. Fold corners together on each cube lightly pinching corners together. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. Whisk beaten egg with 1 tbsp of water for an egg wash. Brush egg wash on each cube. Sprinkle rosemary and sea salt on top.
  6. Bake until golden brown, 12-14 minutes. Cool for 2 minutes.
  7. Drizzle honey on top place on platter decorating with rosemary sprigs and pomegranate seeds.
