Sliced Apples with Ile de France® Brie and Lavender Honey-Nut topping

 

Serves:8 to 10

Product:Ile de France® Brie

 
  • Ingredients:
  • Granny Smith or tart apples
  • ounces ripe Ile de France Brie (with or without the rind), at room temperature
  • cup finely chopped walnuts, almonds, cashews, pistachio, or whole pine nuts
  • cup lavender or herb-flavored honey, or a good quality honey of your choice
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Methods:
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Place the nuts on a cookie sheet and bake for about 8 minutes, or until the nuts are fragrant.
  • Meanwhile, core the apples and cut 8 to 10 thin slices from each (with skin). The slices should be thick enough to hold the Brie and topping. Blot the apple slices with a paper towel to help the cheese adhere to them.
  • Cut the cheese (with or without the rind) into 20 thin slices. Criss-cross two Brie slices on top of each apple slice.
  • In a small bowl, mix the toasted nuts and honey with a generous grinding of pepper. Place a dollop on top of each Brie slice.
  • Arrange on a plate and serve at room temperature.
