From the creative kitchen of Julia Deane and Culinary Works comes this simple, yet elegant, crostini appetizer. The crisp tartness of apples and the warm comfort of melted brie are the perfect combination for a delicious start to a dinner or an original addition to your game day fare. Finish with chopped walnuts and a drizzle of honey and enjoy!
1 baguette, cut into 1/2 inch slides, toasted*
1 jar of apple butter or fig jam
6 oz. brie cheese, room temperature
2 large granny smith apples or apple of your choice
1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts
Honey for drizzling
Place sliced baguette on a sheet tray, drizzle liberally with olive oil, sprinkle with salt & pepper and back until golden brown. Do not store crostini in a zip lock as this will cause them to soften and taste stale. Store loosely covered in bowl.
