  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and soda, and whisk until combined. Using a fork, pastry blender or your hands, add butter pieces to the flour and mix until coarse little crumbles remain. Toss in 1/4 cup cranberries and 1/3 of the diced brie. Add buttermilk and stir with a spoon until just combined, not overmixing. Use your hands if needed to bring the dough together.
  • Press dough on a sheet of parchment paper or cutting board until it is an inch thick.
  • Then cut the dough into squares.
  • Melt 1 stick of butter in the bottom of a pie plate. Place the squares of dough in the pie plate as snug as you can. You may have some extra dough.
  • Sprinkle the rest of the brie and cranberries over top.
  • Bake on the middle rack for 20-25 minutes, or until biscuits are golden brown and the cheese has melted.
  • Serve with toothpicks and napkins.


*If you are running really low on time you can use 1 can of store bought biscuits. I promise it will still be delicious, the original recipe actually calls for 1 can of pillsbury flakey biscuits. *To make cutting the brie easier, place it in the freezer for 20 minutes before cutting.
