Brie and apples are a classic pairing. The tartness of the apples perfectly compliments the sweetness of brie cheese. For a spin on this classic pairing, we decided to pair it with apple butter. Apple butter is produced by slow cooking apples with cider or water to a point where the sugar in the apples caramelizes, turning the apple butter a deep brown. It’s very similar to apple sauce but with a smoother texture and sweeter flavor. You can make your own apple butter or purchase it in your local grocery store.
1 French baguette sliced
1 cup Apple Butter
10oz Ile de France Brie Cheese, sliced
Preheat oven to 375 F. Place sliced baguette on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes until baguette is lightly browned. Then top each baguette with a slice of brie cheese and a dollop of apple butter. Return to oven for an additional 2-3 minutes until warmed. Serve immediately.
