Crostini With Fig Spread & Bubbled Brie

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Kozmic Blues

I found this recipe in a local town newspaper. After having an amazing appetizer with brie at a restaurant last weekend. We thought we'd give this a shot at home. It came out amazing. the sweetness of the figs and wine coupled with the creamy brie and crusty bread was to die for!

This appetizer is absolutely delicious. I used it as a substitute for Brie with Fig Compote which I had at the Dallas Art Musum and it was fantastic. This was a finer spread not as goopy, is that a word? I will do it again and again. Someone suggested we bottle it. Not me, but maybe you, the fig spread that is.
