Baked Brie is a perennially popular appetizer. Here, we complement the Brie with tart cranberry sauce and bake it in pretty individual tartlets using premade pie crust for an ultra-easy crowd-pleasing appetizer.

  • 1 (7 to 8 ounce) prepared pie crust ( ½ of a 14 ounce package; see Tip)
  • ½ cup prepared cranberry sauce or homemade (see associated recipe), divided
  • 3 ounces Brie cheese, cut into 24 pieces, divided
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives (optional)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly coat a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Unroll pie crust onto a cutting board or clean surface. Flatten dough to about 12 inches in diameter. Cut 24 2-inch circles out of the dough with a biscuit cutter, rerolling scraps if needed. Place the dough circles in the muffin tin cups, gently pressing on the bottom and sides. Prick the dough with a fork. Bake until lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the oven.
  3. Add 1 teaspoon cranberry sauce to each cup, then top with a piece of Brie. Return to the oven and bake until the sauce is hot and the cheese has melted, about 5 minutes more. Let cool for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with chives, if desired, and serve warm.
  • Tip: If you have time and enjoy making pastry, you can make you own crust. EatingWell's Butter Pastry Dough (see associated recipe) is easy to make and healthier than most recipes.
