HOLIDAY APPETIZER SMORGASBORDS
This decadent crowd-pleasing Cranberry Raspberry Baked Brie in Puff Pastry comes from our family tradition of a smorgasbord of appetizers on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve - but it is equally a treat for football parties, or alongside your favorite holiday charcuterie board. And if you want an appetizer to "WOW!" everyone, this is the one to make! It disappears so fast that you might be tempted to make two for a larger group.
