Try Savory Cranberry Brie Bites at Your Next Party

Today I’m sharing with you one of my very favorite recipes.  I’ve been making some variation of savory cranberry brie bites at my Christmas party for something like fifteen years!  I know we’re not that close to Christmas, but I wanted to share this now in case you need a finger food for Thanksgiving.  Cranberry sauce is one of those things that I’ve never really liked at dinner, but I love in these little bites.  I guess it’s the portion size?  Or maybe it’s that this particular recipe for the sauce leans more towards the savory than the usual cranberry sauce.  I start by sauteeing

Not that I have any problem with the usual cranberry sauce.  I love either an cran-apple or cran-orange sauce over vanilla ice cream.  I just don’t want something so sweet on my plate at the same time as my mashed potatoes!  (In case it’s not clear, this bitch loves her some mashed potatoes.)

Cut the brie into small chunks that will fit into your filo cups.  Line up your filo cups on a cookie sheet and place one chunk of brie in each cup.
