I made these for the big game. Everyone loved them! Great cheese and fruit pairing. Easy to make.
I made these right after seeing the post on Facebook. They are wonderful! And very easy to make. I did a trial run of a few in the toaster oven and plan to make them again very soon. I love apples and cheese together – a nice twist on Italian crostini.
