My rule of thumb? Never show up to anyone’s home empty handed. Whether I’m a guest at a party or just hanging out at a friend’s house, I always show up with a little something to contribute. I discovered this amazing baked brie dish (thanks to my mother-in-law), and now I never have to worry about what to bring when I’m scrambling at the last minute. It’s a quick, delicious, and easy appetizer for a crowd (and always re-requested)! Today I’m sharing the recipe with you just in time for the holidays. This is great to bring to parties, events, or even just to make when hosting a casual evening. This baked brie app is ALWAYS a hit with a crowd and requested over and over again. Confession: I make it for almost every holiday!

Baked Brie with Jam:
- One can of Pillsbury Butter Flake Crescent Rolls
- One large wedge of regular Brie Cheese
- One jar of raspberry preserves, I love these from Trader Joe’s (but you can sub any flavor to your taste!)
- Preheat oven to 400F. Arrange the crescent rolls in a spiral shape in an over-safe dish. A ceramic pie dish works best because it can be served straight from the oven!
- Cut the rind off the brie, trying to preserve as much of the “meat” of it as possible (can you tell I’m not well-versed in kitchen terminology)?!
- Cut the wedge lengthwise. Arrange both slices in the middle of the spiral.
- Fold the crescent rolls ends over the brie to meet in the middle.
- Spoon heaping tablespoons of preserves in between each spiral. It will look most visually appealing after baking if you tuck the spoonfuls under each crescent.
- Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes, remove foil for last 5 minutes-it’s ready when the crescent rolls are golden brown and the brie melts!
- Serve warm, crackers optional. Enjoy!
