Description

A semi-homemade dessert using store-bought biscuit dough stuffed with creamy Brie and tangy cranberry sauce. And covered in a buttery, sweet cinnamon-spice mixture.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cans of ready to bake biscuit dough (approx. 16 biscuits)
  • 3/4 c cranberry sauce*
  • 1 wedge of Brie, rind trimmed**
  • ½ c dried cranberries

Cinnamon-Sugar Mix

  • 2 tbs cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 c sugar

Brown Sugar-Butter Mix

  • 3/4 c brown sugar
  • 3/4 stick butter, melted

Instructions

  1. PREP: Preheat the oven to 350 and lightly grease a non-stick Bundt pan. In a small dish, microwave the butter until just melted and stir in the brown sugar. Mix the white sugar and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger) together in a Ziploc bag and shake until well combined. Set all aside.
  2. THE DOUGH: Divide the 16 biscuits as follows. Take 4 biscuits and chop each one into eight pieces. Place the chopped biscuits in the sugar & spice bag, seal and shake until well coated, remove from bag and set aside. Then take the remaining 12 biscuits and chop them into fourths (set these aside for the next step, these will be the ones we stuff).
  3. STUFF POCKETS: Using the biscuit pieces you set aside, press each one between your hands and use your fingers to pull the dough into small flat rounds, being careful not to rip the dough. Place a small amount of Brie and equal small amount of cranberry sauce in the center of a round and fold the dough over the filling to cover, pinch with your fingers to seal it into a small ball.
  4. LAYER & BAKE: Roll the stuffed dough balls in the sugar spice mix and place a layer into greased pan. Sprinkle half of the dried cranberries and half of the sugar coated dough bits from earlier. Then repeat this layer once you’ve finished stuffing the remaining dough balls. Finally pour the melted butter and brown sugar mix over the top. Bake for 30-35 min. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before flipping upside down onto a plate to serve.
