We use store-bought crescent dough then fill it with creamy brie cheese, roll them up then top with crunchy pecans and a little salt. They bake up in no time. The dough we used is from Pillsbury. We’re sure you’ve noticed their products in your grocery store – we used their Crescent Rolls for this. If you can’t find Pillsbury’s crescent rolls, feel free to use any crescent roll dough. (We have noticed that Trader Joe’s has their own brand of crescent rolls).

How to Make Mini Baked Brie Roll Ups
This really could not get any easier.
Place a big piece of brie onto the long end of a crescent dough triangle, tuck in the sides and roll up. Then brush the tops with egg wash so they turn shiny and golden brown after baking. We also add a pecan half and some sea salt on top before baking — I love the way it looks.
The rolls take about 15 minutes to bake and are perfect for parties or a side dish. The brie might escape a little during baking — that’s okay, they still taste amazing. By the way, brie isn’t the only choice when it comes to the filling. Most cheeses will work, in fact, a mixture of feta cheese and olives would be amazing.

Mini Baked Brie Roll Ups
We use store-bought crescent dough for these mini roll ups. Brie is excellent here, but most cheese will work in the place of brie. Adding more fillings such as diced olives, ham or jam is also a great idea.
You Will Need
1 (8-ounce) can Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
6 ounces brie cheese
1 large egg
1 tablespoon water
8 pecan halves
Coarse sea salt for sprinkling on top
Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Separate the crescent dough into 8 triangles. Divide the brie into 8 pieces. Place one piece of brie onto the wider end of a dough triangle. Fold in the sides then roll the dough into a tight packet. Try to make sure the ends are closed so the cheese won’t come out during baking. Repeat with remaining dough triangles.
Place packets onto baking sheet. In a small bowl, whisk the egg and water then use a pastry brush to lightly brush tops with egg wash. Press one pecan half onto the top and sprinkle with salt.
Bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on baking sheet 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
