A little bit sweet, a little bit salty, a little bit tart – these little bites are perfect for any holiday party.

Cranberry Brie Bites | Taste and Tell

One thing I look forward to every year is our family New Year’s Eve celebration. It’s definitely all about family, but second in importance is the food. There isn’t a fancy dinner. There isn’t any elaborate planning. But there are lots of appetizers. Lots of them!! For several years now, it has been the tradition to get together and all bring an appetizer or two. But with my family, when we say that everyone needs to bring an appetizer, you can bet that we will all show up with 4 or 5 of them! We spend the evening playing games, laughing, and eating. And since every person in my family is a great cook, the food is always amazing!!

Needless to say, I’m always on the lookout for new appetizer ideas. I absolutely love brie en croute, but I decided to try something a little different here. I wanted something that was easier to grab and go – and these little bites are exactly that. No need for a plate, no need for a knife. Just your fingers!! And believe me when I say that this is one of the easiest recipes ever. Just 3 ingredients – a Pillsbury thin crust pizza crust, brie, and cranberry sauce.

If you need an appetizer idea for this holiday season, these little bites will be the hit of the party!
