Once these were done baking, I noticed some of the cheese and jelly leaked out. Well since I'm not one to waste (especially cheese), I just spooned the drippings on top of the crescent rolls. It really made a difference, having a sweet spicy glaze on the outside. Yum! If you don't have jalapeno jelly, you could use red pepper jelly or if you prefer a fruit based jelly. I used Immaculate Baking Co. crescent rolls but you can use whatever kind of crescent rolls you'd like. These aren't super sweet or very cheesy. I kept the proportions pretty light but if you want to add extra cheese or jelly - I say do it. More glaze-y goodness to top them with.
Jalapeno Jelly and Brie Crescent Bites
Cook Time: < 15 minutes
Prep: < 5 minutes
Serves: 8 rolls
- 1 can of crescent rolls (should have about 8 rolls)
- 8 tsp of jalapeno jelly
- 2 oz brie
Preheat the oven according to directions for the crescent rolls.
Roll out the crescent rolls on parchment paper. Take 1 tsp of the jalapeno jelly and spread it evenly on the surface of each crescent roll. Top each crescent roll with a 1/4 oz of brie, at the larger end of the crescent dough.
Take the larger end of the crescent and roll the dough towards the thinner end. Roll loosely. Place the side with the tip downwards.
Repeat with all of crescents. Then transfer the parchment sheet onto a cookie sheet.
Bake according to the directions on the crescent rolls container.
Once they are baked, any excess cheese and jelly that ran out of the crescent roll, spoon on top of the baked crescent rolls.
Serve warmed :)
