There is something so magical about autumn- the changing colours, the crisp air, the abundance of all things pumpkin spiced! What if I told you that you could have autumn all year round with Autumn Glory Apples?!
Delicately flavored with smooth caramel and warm cinnamon, it’s a little delicious slice of fall. I’ve partnered with Autumn Glory Apples to create a great appetiser – whipped goats’ cheese crostini with apple, thyme and honey.
This easy recipe makes great use of the crisp, firm flesh of the fruit, and the subtle caramel and cinnamon notes pair beautifully with the punchy goats’ cheese and floral thyme. Ready in less than 20 minutes, they’re the perfect start to Friendsgiving, or why not get date night off to a scrumptious start with these moreish crostini full of fall flavours?
Serves 8 / makes 8 crostini
Make time – 20 minutes
6 oz goats’ cheese
3 oz cream cheese
8 slices of sour dough or whole wheat/grain loaf
3 Autumn Glory Cinnamon Caramel Apples
4 sprigs of fresh thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp honey
Using an electric whisk, mix together the goats’ cheese, cream cheese, fresh thyme and salt/pepper to taste. Whisk until smooth and well aerated. Chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
Brush the sliced bread lightly with olive oil and toast on a medium-low heat in a skillet for 3-4 on each side. Set on a cookie rack to cool.
Thinly slice the apples before cutting each disc in half length ways.
Spread a generous spoonful of the cheese blend onto the now cool toast before layering 3-4 slices of apple on top. Drizzle with some honey and sprinkle with any remaining thyme leaves.
