Cranberry-Brie-Blue Cheese Biscuit Appetizer

By Tieghan Gerard
Created January 10, 2017
Buttery biscuit dough baked with Brie, blue cheese and cranberries makes an enticing holiday appetizer that's ready in next to no time.

Full disclosure: This appetizer is one of my favorite dishes, ever. It’s simple, but when it appears on our holiday buffet, it’s the first thing to go and I have never, not once, been left with leftovers.

Now, confession no. 2: I stole this recipe from my Mom. Though she’s much more of a baker than a cook, she has a couple recipes tucked up her sleeve, with this one being one of the best. While Mom makes this using canned biscuits, today I’m sharing a version that uses Bisquick, which, in my opinion, gives it more of a homemade touch. It’s so easy and so delicious; I just know you’re going to love it.

So let’s get cooking already! To start, grab your ingredients. (You’ll find the complete list of ingredients and measurements below.)


Pour half the melted butter into the bottom of an 8- or 9-inch pie plate. In a bowl, mix together the Bisquick and milk.


Add rounded tablespoon sized dollops of batter to the greased pie plate until the pie plate is full of biscuit balls and all the dough has been used.


Drizzle the remaining butter over top the biscuits.


Now sprinkle the Brie, blue cheese and about half the cranberries over top the biscuits. Use your hands to push some of the cheese into the biscuits.


Place the pie plate on a baking sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the biscuits are golden. For a finishing touch, sprinkle on the remaining cranberries.


Serve warm with cocktail forks or toothpicks. You’ll be amazed how quickly it disappears!
