A fancy yet simple appetizer to serve at your holiday get together. Crispy crostinis topped with creamy brie, maple spiced pumpkin, and cranberry chutney.
I have had kind of a crazy long day, and I have no words to share with you all. Nothing about Friday Night Lights. No crazy rants about life and nothing cute or funny. So I give you food!
Toasted slices of baguette topped with brie, a spiced maple pumpkin mixture and topped off with my favorite cranberry chutney.
Pumpkin and Cranberry Crostinis With Maple and Brie
Thin slices of a french baguette
olive oil for toasting
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 tbs maple syrup
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup Crème de Brie
1/2 cup of your favorite cranberry chutney
Rosemary sprigs for garnish
Place slices of baguette on a baking sheet. Lightly brush both sides with olive oil. Bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes and flip. Bake for a couple more minutes or until they are golden and dry.
In a small bowl mix pumpkin puree with maple and cinnamon. Set aside.
Spread a thin layer of brie over the top of each crostini, top with the pumpkin mixture and then dollop with a bit of chutney. If you are not a fan of the sweet/savory of the chutney you can certainly substitute it for cranberry sauce.
Garnish with rosemary.
