Brie & Apple Crostini - a recipe by request
This popular sandwich is one we like to serve around the holiday season. It is quite easy to prepare, and equally as tasty to eat. Many guests have compared it to eating a slice of warm creamy apple pie!
Brie & Apple Crostini
Baguette, sliced on the angle into 1/2" portions
1/2 stick butter, melted
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. pecans or walnuts
2 - 3 Granny Smith apples,cored and sliced into 16 thin slices
soft spreadable Brie ( I use Alouette Creme de Brie)
Toast baguette slices. Spread a layer of Brie on the toasted baguette. Top with a thin slice of green apple. Mix butter, brown sugar, and walnuts together. Spread this mixture over the green apple. Place in preheated 350 degree oven for about 8 minutes, until the Brie has melted. Serve warm. These may be prepped about an hour ahead of time, covered and held until you pop them in the oven.
