Cranberry Brie Bites

cranberry brie bites | pale yellowThanksgiving is in three days and whether you are hosting or guest-ing it, here is my one and only Thanksgiving pro-tip.  Make homemade cranberry sauce.  There is zero chopping and minimal prep; toss all the ingredients in a saucepan and cook.  Easy and impressive.  Cranberry sauce should be homemade and should be made a few days in advance and stored in the fridge until dinner time. cranberry brie bites | pale yellowBut let's be fancy and not wait until the turkey is carved to indulge in some cranberry sauce; make adorable little bites filled with all the flavors of dinner in a tiny, cheesy bite.  If you're hosting this is the perfect appetizer to have that early guest put together (I'm always that early guest) and if you're a guest, this is a delightful treat to set out before the main meal.
