Apple Brie Pecan Crescents


If you are looking for an appetizer that looks pretty and will stop people dead in their tracks from sheer beauty, this is NOT that recipe! It is tasty, has all of the sweet and savory notes, but let's be honest, when brie melts it has a mind of it's own!


1 apple, cored and sliced
1 tube crescent rolls
16 pecan halves
1/4 brie round, rind removed

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lay out the perforated triangles on a flat surface. Cut a thin slice of brie and place at the end of the triangle. Top with a thin slice of apple and a pecan half. Starting at the wide end of the crescent, roll upward until the end of the crescent is tucked under. Make sure that you place them on a non stick baking sheet lined with parchment paper, with the pecan facing up. Repeat for the remaining crescents and bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Let cool slightly on the baking sheet and the using a spatula, scrape any loose cheese while it is still warm up towards the crescent again. Let cool fully and place on  your serving tray. This would be really good served with a warm jam to spread on top or dip in!
