How do you make Apple Brie Roll Ups?
Ever since we returned from our summer vacation to New England I’ve been on an apple and maple kick.
It’s a classic flavor combination so why not combine them all with a few pecans for a fall appetizer?
I chose the Granny Smith variety for this dish but you could certainly use Honey Crisp or Gala.
Slice the apples into about ¼ inch slices so as not to overpower the dish yet still keep the crunch.
Using chopped pecans allows a little bit in each bite.
Find the best maple syrup you can you can afford. Whatever you use, don’t use pancake syrup.
It is important to note that when you roll up the crescents, seal the ends…well. There were one or two that I did not pinch the ends very well and the gooey goodness of the brie oozed out.
