Sarah Stegner re-creates the classic fruit, cheese, and nut combination with an easy apple syrup and toasted nut bread.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring cider to a boil in a large saucepan; cook until reduced to 1/2 cup (about 15 minutes). Remove from heat. Add butter; stir with a whisk until butter melts.

Step 2

Place 2 bread halves on each of 8 dessert plates. Divide cheese evenly among bread halves. Place 2 apple slices on each bread half. Drizzle 1 tablespoon cider reduction around each serving.

This was great! Of course an aged cheddar would be wonderful with just the apples, but the nut bread and reduced cider made it gourmet. I used a fruit-and-nut artisan bread and brushed the cider onto it before adding the cheese and apple on top.
