If you need an easy but impressive appetizer for entertaining try my Brie Appetizer Bites with Raspberry. Only 8 ingredients and 10 minutes of prep and they are beautiful enough to wow your guests.
Preheat oven to 350. Grease 36 holes of 2 mini muffin tins generously with cooking spray.
Put cheese in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave one minute. Stir. Microwave 30 seconds. Stir. At this point, all the cheese should be melted. Microwave 30 more seconds until uniform and gloopy (it should look like cheese fondue at this point).
Add the rest of the dough ingredients and the cheese to a food processor. Mix using the dough blade until a uniform color. Once it is a uniform color use a small cookie scoop to divide the dough between 36 holes of 2 mini muffin tins to make 36 brie appetizer bites. Use your thumbs to make a well in the center of each (it helps to wet your thumbs so the dough does not stick to them).
Bake for 20 minutes until puffed up and golden brown.
Immediately after removing the cooked dough cups from the oven add a cube of brie to the center of each dough cup. Use a butter knife to pop out the appetizer bites. They should release very easily. Transfer to a serving platter. Top each with a little of the jam, chopped raspberries, and a sprinkle of powdered sweetener, if using.
If you do not have a food processor you can mix the dough in a medium bowl with a wooden spoon but you may need to dump it onto wax paper and knead it by hand to thoroughly incorporate the ingredients.
