I’d like to share with you another fun appetizer or light meal idea for the fall season. Our family had this several nights ago. Out of the seven of us (five 10 years and under), there was only one person who didn’t care for it. We got the idea from the Betty Crocker Halloween Cookbook. It’s another recipe that my 8-year-old picked out.
First things first–the recipe calls for Brie cheese which is a very buttery, soft, French cheese. Warming it up really does wonders. It also calls for Apricot fruit spread. This matters because you need a spread that’s more fluid than jam or preserves. If you can locate those two items, the rest is easy.
I just eyeballed the jack-o’-lantern face, using a sharp knife. I also scooped out a little of the insides with a toothpick. You want to make some space to fill in with the apricot spread.
How cute does that little face look? Honestly, that’s the most difficult part of making this–carving the face. After that you’re home free. Once it’s warmed up (at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes), just serve it with crackers, apple slices and apricot fruit spread. I especially loved the crackers, Brie and fruit spread together. Yummy!
