A Break from Baking – Brie and Proscuitto Bites

img_1055

My girlfriends and I had a pot luck Christmas gift exchange, and my dish to bring was an appetizer. I decided to make something that I had been eyeing for a while – the brie and proscuitto bites. I made them at home before bringing them over to my friend’s house, so I have no pictures of the finished product – but trust me, they were amazing and very addictive. I am glad I made them somewhere public so I didn’t just eat the whole tray myself. In Canada we don’t have the Pillsbury recipe creatings, so I just used a package of the crescent rolls and cut it into little squares. Still good!

Brie and Proscuitto Bites

Source: Our Sweet Life

1 container of Pillsbury Recipe Creations
1 triangle of Brie cheese
about 1/4 lb thin cut prosciutto

Directions:

  • Grease a mini muffin tin and pre-heat the oven to 350.
  • Cut the Recipe Creations (or crescent roll dough) into 1 1/2 inch x 1 1/2 inch squares.
  • Cut the brie into little squares also, and wrap a bit of prosciutto around each piece of cheese.
  • Gently press the squares of recipe creations into the muffin tin, place a prosciutto wrapped brie into the center and bake about 20 minutes until the dough is golden brown.

They were amazingly easy and very impressive – I got lots of compliments on the time I must have spent on them, which I obviously accepted without denial.
