Roasted Grape Baked Brie Crescent Ring

Just the other day, I received a group text about our annual
Friendsgiving. I
was immediately appreciative of the pre-planning, but then it
occurred to me that our friendly celebration is just a few
weeks away. (How did that happen?!)

With Friendsgiving (and Thanksgiving) just around the corner, I
couldn’t help but think about what I wanted to contribute. I
personally love a good appetizer, especially one that everyone can
share in together, so I created one using some of the most
delectable flavors of the season. Grapes from California,
in particular, were an easy choice. They’re in season right now,
and they’re an ideal ingredient because they’re nutritious
and give recipes a natural boost of added flavor and texture. Brie
cheese, walnuts, and honey were also an easy choice since they
pair so well with grapes and fit right into the autumn season.

That said, here is a tasty appetizer that you should most
definitely add to your holiday recipe list. This Roasted
Grape Baked Brie Crescent Ring
is easy-to-make (if I can
do it, anyone can!), visually appealing (isn’t it pretty?), and
crowd-pleasing (everyone loves grapes and cheese!).

Guys, it’s a winner all around, and I hope you and your family
and friends love it as much as we do!

Roasted Grape Baked Brie Crescent Ring

  • Prep Time: 15
  • Cook Time: 20
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup red and green grapes
  • 2 packages of crescent rolls (8 oz each)
  • 1/3 pound brie cheese, rind removed and cut into chunks
  • 1/3 cup cream cheese at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoon finely diced walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon honey
Instructions

Preheat oven 375 degrees F. Unroll both cans of
dough and separate into 16 triangles.

Line a round baking pan/pizza pan with parchment paper and then
arrange the triangles in ring. You want the dough to overlap. The
dough ring should look like a sun.

Spread cream cheese around the center of the ring. Top with
chunks of Brie cheese.

Slice grapes into bite-size pieces (in half, quarters, or
smaller). Place grapes on top of cream cheese and Brie. Then,
sprinkle the dough ring with walnuts and drizzle with honey.

Bring each dough triangle up over filling and then tuck
the dough under the bottom layer (of dough) to secure it. Repeat
around the ring until entire filling is enclosed. (It’s okay if
some filling shows through a little.)

Bake ring for 20 minutes or until dough is golden brown and
thoroughly baked.

Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Serve with fresh
red and green grapes!
