Brandy Apples with Goat Cheese
- 1 baguette
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 green apple, sliced
- 2 tablespoons brandy or apple vodka (this may be omitted)
- 1 cup softened goat cheese
Preheat oven on low broil setting.
Slice baguette into 35 small rounds. Coat each round with olive oil and lightly salt and pepper them. Place them on a cookie sheet. In a small saucepan, melt butter and add apple slices. When apples are coated, add brandy and toss gently for about 3 minutes, until apples become slightly soft. Remove from heat.
To construct, place 1 apple slice on a toast round and spoon about 1 tablespoon of goat cheese on top. When all of them are constructed, place entire cookie sheet under broiler and remove as soon as the top of the goat cheese is slightly browned. Be sure you don't forget them, because they will brown quickly.
