These Cranberry Brie Bites make the perfect holiday appetizer recipe! Made with fillo shells, which are similar to phyllo dough, they come together so fast and are like little brie and cranberry tartlets. These are a great way to use up left over cranberry sauce! If you are looking for another perfect recipe that combines cranberry and brie cheese, then you will want to try this cranberry brie crescent braid. If you are hosting a holiday party, you will also want to make your guests these amaretto orange bellinis and this olive cheeseball!

Lined up on a backing sheet, the Cranberry Brie Bites are topped with some Orange Zest.

This post was first published on Real Housemoms where I was a contributor.

Did you have a good Thanksgiving? We did! We got to spend time with family and Piper got to ham it up for people and make them believe that she is nothing but an innocent charmer. Kid deserves an Academy Award. Seriously, everywhere I take her she is charming people. Some day that kid will be a broadway star or a Senator. Perhaps both.

And then we came home and suddenly our house felt overwhelmingly FULL of STUFF.

Maybe it’s the idea of the coming holidays or maybe it’s that we never really fully unpacked things from our move, but Nathan and I got this very sudden urge to purge – something that we have never been good at. Ever.

We literally spent the entire day on Saturday going through old toys, puzzles, games, art supplies – we threw away some and we ended up taking SIX huge boxes of stuff to Goodwill.

Oh . . . . did I not mention it’s the kids’ things that we were giving away? ????

It’s a lot easier to get rid of things when they aren’t yours.

On a white plate, the Cranberry Brie Bites are topped with orange zest.

But in all seriousness, it feels so much better knowing where things are in our house and knowing that we have gotten rid of things that we had for years but were in great condition and that some other family is going to be able to use them.

And it also made me really realize that our kids need basically nothing for Christmas. ????

Speaking of keeping life simple – these Cranberry Brie Bites are a super easy appetizer to make for the holidays and a great way to use some left over cranberry sauce! They are so easy to throw together and will be the perfect addition to a holiday party.

    The Cranberry Brie is perfect! It turns out with the best of sweet and a little pucker from the cranberry but the cracker evens it all out. Excellent recipe. It also just looks so pretty on the table too. Thank you for sharing.
