appetizer or dessert?

apple crisp baked brie

Are you ready for Turkey Day? I hope so! While it’s a given to have the bird and all the fixings ready to go as well as pies planned for dessert, do you also put out a little something to snack on before dinner?

I think the perfect appetizer bite is sweet and savory. These bacon wrapped dates do the trick. And Jessica’s stuffed mushrooms have the savory part down! This recipe for apple crisp baked brie definitely fits the sweet and savory bill. Part gooey melty cheese and part holiday favorite apple crisp, the combination is great on crackers or sliced baguette.

serves: 6

1- 16 ounce round Brie cheese
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
2 small to medium apples, diced

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease a 10- to 12-inch round pie plate or baking dish with cooking spray or butter. Place round of Brie in middle of pie plate. In a medium bowl, mix oats, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and pecans. Add butter, and use your hands to incorporate the softened butter into the dry mixture. (You just want everything to be moist.) Mix in the apples. Spread apple mixture over top of Brie and around sides. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the crisp topping is browned. Serve hot with crackers or toasted bread.
