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.
