This is such a nice appetizer to serve. Has a tang from the Balderson Cheese, sweet from the pear and a little crunch from the toasted pecans. Try it and, like Mikey, you’ll like it.
- 4 oz. crumbled cheese
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 2 tbsp. brandy
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 16 baguette slices
- 1 red skinned pear, thinly sliced
Turn broiler on.
Make sure cheese and butter are at room temperature. Mash with a fork until smooth. Stir in brandy and add to the cheese mixture. Place baguettes on a cookie sheet, toasting one side under the broiler. Remove from the oven and on the untoasted side, add a slice of pear and top with a tsp. of the cheese mixture.
Broil four to six inches from the broiler for about two minutes or until it gets bubbly. Remove from the oven and sprinkle each baguette with the chopped pecans. Serve! YUM.
