Looking for an easy-to-make, quick appetizer recipe for Thanksgiving this year? Well, look no further! These Cranberry Brie Bites are simple and unbelievably delicious. With a total cook time of 35 minutes, you’ll be enjoying this sweet recipe in no time. Here’s what you need to get the job done:
- 1 (8-oz.) tube crescent dough
- Cooking spray, for pan

- 1/2 c. whole berry cranberry sauce
- 1/4 c. chopped pecans

- Bake until the crescent pastry is golden, about 15 minutes.
So why was this tasty brie-bite recipe paired with Seed & Smith’s Garlic Road strain? Here’s Taylor’s take on this cannabis-appetizer marriage…
“I paired these bites with Garlic Road for so many reasons! This strain really is my favorite of the garlic strains because of how it smells and tastes. The garlic, almost cheesy smell is funky and delicious. But when smoked, its surprisingly sweet, and not at all overpoweringly spicy like some garlic strains. I think it tastes this way in both the flower and concentrate, which is something I rarely find, and really love. This strain reminds me of another favorite sweet & savory combo… cheese and fruit. So, I couldn’t resist the idea to pair this with my favorite cheese, brie. This recipe feels like a true embodiment of Garlic Road. Savory, a little salty, a little garlic-y, a hint of rich herbs thanks to the rosemary & the sweetness of creamy brie and cranberry sauce. They go together wonderfully, both the flower and concentrate! It sounds like you need to try this pairing for your own so you know where I’m coming from!”
