|1||pack 2 Udi’s Gluten Free-French Baguettes||1|
|1||Granny Smith apple, cored, halved and cut into ¼-inch slices||1|
|1 wedge||brie cheese, cut into 1 ½ inch pieces||150 – 200 ml|
|1 cup||cooked or canned cranberries, drained||250 ml|
|¼ cup||roughly chopped pecans||60 ml|
|raw honey to drizzle|
Prepare Udi’s French Baguettes according to package directions (do not over brown) and set aside to cool slightly. Turn baguettes on their side and gently slice with a serrated knife (be careful not to squish the bread) into 1-cm thick rounds and place on a baking sheet. Preheat an oven broiler to low. Place the baking sheet under the broiler to lightly toast the baguette rounds, about 1 minute. Remove from the oven and turn the rounds over. Top each with a slice of apple and a piece of brie. Return to the broiler for 1 minute, until the cheese just begins to melt. Top with a spoonful of the cranberries, a sprinkling of pecans, and drizzle with a little honey. Broil a further minute. Serve immediately.
Makes 16 to 18 crostini
