Cranberry Orange Brie Crostini

Cranberry Orange Brie Crostini

December is filled with holiday parties, dinners, and events. We love seeing so many of our friends, family members, and celebrating the joyous season. Of course, we enjoy the tasty food as well. One of my favorite holiday appetizers to serve and eat is cranberry orange brie crostini.

If you are looking for a new holiday appetizer to serve this year, you must try this crostini recipe. It is delicious, easy to make, and pretty to serve. All you have to do is spread orange marmalade on baguette slices, top with brie, and pop them in the oven until the cheese is melted. I could eat a whole plate of melted brie on bread, but to spice things up for the holidays I add dried cranberries and pistachios on top of each baguette slice. It’s that easy!

Make this festive cranberry orange brie crostini for all of your holiday parties. It is sure to be a hit and doesn’t require a lot of work-my favorite kind of recipe.

I am providing this appetizer for Share Our Strength’s Progressive Dinner: Share Our Holiday Table. I worked with Share Our Strength when we hosted a bake sale for The National Food Bloggers Bake Sale. Share Our Strength is a wonderful organization and I am happy to team up with them again to help raise money to feed hungry children.

Cranberry Orange Brie Crostini


1 baguette, cut into 1/4 inch slices, cut on the diagonal

1/4 pound brie, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
1 chop chopped pistachios


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Spread each baguette slice with about 1 tablespoon of orange marmalade. Next, add a piece of brie to each slice. Place baguette slices face side up on a large baking sheet. Bake for 4-5 minutes, or until the brie is melted. Remove from oven.

3. Top cheesy baguette slices with a few dried cranberries and sprinkle with chopped pistachios. Serve warm.
