Bleeding Heart Brie Recipe

Bleeding Heart Brie Recipe

This impressive appetizer is simple to prepare and requires simple ingredients, too. The cherries add a new twist to baked Brie and provide a sweet contrast to the salty cheese and pastry.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:10 servings


  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 round (8 ounces) Brie cheese
  • 1/3 cup cherry preserves
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Assorted crackers


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Unroll crescent dough; divide into two squares. Seal seams and perforations. Cut off corners from each square, forming two circles; discard scraps. Place one circle on a greased baking sheet; top with cheese. Spoon preserves over the top. Bring edges of dough up around sides of cheese. Top with remaining dough circle, pressing to seal edges. Brush top and sides with egg.

"Our family loves brie and this dramatic presentation is wonderful for halloween. As others have said, it can be adapted for other occasions to. Just last week I made it for Christmas, using some extra crescent roll dough to make a bow on top of the brie and used black berry preserves inside for a change. It was still delicious."

"I have made this recipe for several years for halloween Parties. I have used this with the suggested refrigerated crescent rolls and with Puff Pastry both very successfully. It is always a hit with adults and kids. I cut the round Brie into a heart shape just for the effect. For other holidays I use other preserves and leave it round. This recipe doesn't have to be just for halloween. Right now I am making two of them for a Thanksgiving get together with Apricot Preserves and Cranberry Sauce."
