Mini Baked Brie Roll Ups

– This Recipe is Sponsored by Pillsbury –

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).

This really could not get any easier.

How to Make Crescent Rolls Stuffed with Brie Cheese

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.

Rolling up the cheese

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

  • PREP
  • COOK

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.

Makes 8 roll ups

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


    1Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    2Separate 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.Step 1

    3Place 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.

    4Bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on baking sheet 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

    If not able to serve immediately, are these good once cooled off? If not, can they be microwaved? I want to make these to bring to an event, so they would have to come out of the oven 30 minutes before serving.
    Also, has anyone tried making these as a smaller version to serve among a table with multiple appetizers? (maybe 16 smaller rolls instead of 8 regular size rolls?)

      Hi Vicky, These are lovely warm or at room temperature. You can absolutely reheat them in the oven or microwave.

    Can these be baked ahead & frozen for future use.

    • Joanne May 4, 2018, 12:56 pm

      Hi Eileen, We have never done this ourselves, but I do not see why you could not freeze them.

    I made maple bacon onion jam & spread on dough before adding cheese. Amazing!!!

    I must giggle/ laugh at mine. Each one has leaked so much I am hoping to put some on top of each. i must have put to much cheese in each. I wish I could have shown a picture of them. But they were good

    I know this is probably a stupid question…, but do you remove the white rind from Brie ? And if so , How do you remove, and then be able to cut Brie in squares when the Brie is sooo soft? I need help here…Please somebody answer me soon, thanks for your time.

    • Joanne March 5, 2015, 10:27 am

      No, we don’t remove any rind from the brie.

    These look delicious! I want to make them for an upcoming party of 35 people. Do you think it’s possible to roll up the Brie and seal it ahead of time (hours before), refrigerate and then add the rest (egg wash, pecans and salt) before baking?

    • Joanne August 8, 2014, 11:49 am

      Hi Kate, Good question! I think you should be fine, although I have never actually tried making these in advance. If you try it, we’d love to hear how it went.

    What a simple yet elegant idea for an appetizer — can’t wait to try it!
