Do you watch Downton Abbey? I am pretty obsessed. I cannot wait for season 5 to start this weekend. About two months ago I binge watched season 4. But THEN last week I watched the trailer for season 5 and I decided I had to rewatch season 4 again to full prepare myself.

Here are some of the things I can’t wait to see: Who does Lady Mary pick? Lady Edith and this baby? Is Mr. Gregson coming back or not? Will the estate actually survive? In the spirit of the season I am sharing the most elegant appetizer ever.

My Blackberry Brie Bites not only look terrifically fancy, but they taste absolutely incredible, too. Bonus: they’re low-carb! Sweet blackberry jam and fresh blackberries perfectly pair with gooey and flavorful brie, all nestled inside a slightly crisp and wonderfully flaky crust. These handheld bites are guaranteed to be the hit of your next party!

Delightful little brie and blackberry bites are impressive to guests, however, they are so incredibly easy to make that I call them an effortless appetizer!

How to Make Brie Bites

Because it is so easy to make this Brie appetizer, you can absolutely put these brie and blackberry bites at the bottom of your festivities prepping to-do list. Start to finish, it only takes about 20 minutes until you and your guests are enjoying!

  1. Firstly, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and spray a mini muffin pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Cut the Fathead dough or pie crust into chunks large enough to be pressed into the individual mini muffin tins.
  3. Remove the rind from the cheese, and then cut the brie into 24 small pieces.
  4. Place a chunk of brie inside each pie crust cup.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes, until the cheese has gotten soft and the crust is slightly browned.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow the brie bites to cool slightly.
  7. Use a 1/2 teaspoon to spoon a small amount of blackberry jam onto each, and add a fresh blackberry on top.

Seriously, these brie and blackberry tarts are the easiest party appetizer!These are a really wonderful snack for any occasion, but they are especially nice for New Year’s if you are looking for something low-maintenance with big flavor.

Can I Prep These Bites in Advance?

Yes! Assemble and bake the bites, but add the jam and fresh berries just before serving them.

Are these a keto-friendly appetizer?

Yes! Using this Fathead Dough instead of a store-bought refrigerated pie crust means that this is both gluten-free and low-carb. I know jam is not usually eaten on a keto diet, but I use about 1/2 teaspoon per bite, so it ends up working for me. With these ingredients, each bite comes to 3.2 net carbs.

As you can see in the pictures, I played around with skipping the blackberries on some, then skipping the jam on others. This lowers the carbs even further, and the flavor was still delicious no matter what! If you choose to leave off the fresh berries, each bite is 2.8 net carbs. If you leave off the jam instead, they blackberry bites are 1 net carb each.

What kind of jam should I use on brie bites?

Brie pairs well with a number of fruits and jams. I used blackberry because of the fresh blackberries I already had, but I bet raspberry jam and fresh raspberries would work nicely here too. You could try any combination you’d like!

If you are super keto, you might want to leave off the jam. The brie bite + fresh blackberry brings it to just 1 net carb each.
