A buttery mixture of brown sugar and chopped walnuts tops sweet apple slices and savory cheese for an elegant appetizer with broad appeal. We used a combination of Granny Smith and Braeburn apples, but use your favorite. Fresh pears are a good option, too.
1 baquette, cut into 1/4-inch-thick-slices
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 (13.2-oz.) pkg. Brie cheese, thinly sliced
3 Granny Smith apples or Braeburn apples cored and sliced
How to Make It
Arrange bread slices on an ungreased baking sheet; bath at 350° until lightly toasted. Set aside.
Mix together sugar, walnuts and butter. Top each slice of bread with a cheese slice, an apple slice and one teaspoon brown sugar mixture. Bake at 350° for 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese melts. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.
