How Many Appetizers does this make?

I made 24 Cranberry Brie Bites one night and then used up the remainder of the brie and cranberry sauce a few days later to make 24 for another event.

There is no trick, these appetizers are super simple and there is no cooking outside of baking them for 15 minutes.


Can I make these appetizers for a crowd ahead of time?

The second time I made these, I prepped them about 30 minutes in advance, covered them and then baked them. Because it uses tubed crescent rolls, I would not assemble them too far in advance. 


How to make Three-Ingredient Appetizers For A Crowd

Simply roll out the tubed crescent rolls and roll them out slightly with a rolling pin. Then cut into 24 squares. I found a pizza cutter to be the perfect tool for this.
