Appetizers Holiday Recipes

Baked Brie Bites

It’s the holiday season once more, and the holiday season means holiday parties.  Crystal and I are fond of holiday gatherings.  We’ve hosted quite a few in our time, and we usually serve a baked brie.  Baked brie is awesome, but it isn’t the easiest thing to eat when you’re trying to socialize.  If only there were a way to make baked brie in to a finger food.  Well, theoretical friends, we’re here to save the day.  We can’t take all the credit.  The good folks who decided to make puff pastry bites helped us out with the pastry, but the idea was all ours.  They are super easy, and super tasty.  Give them a try at your next get together.  You won’t be disappointed.
