Directions

  1. Combine figs, vinegar, brown sugar, onion, ginger, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, cloves, and cinnamon in a saucepan; simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until fig spread is reduced, about 30 minutes. Transfer fig spread to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate, 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  3. Arrange bread slices on a baking sheet. Lightly spray both sides of each bread slice with olive oil cooking spray.
  4. Bake bread slices under the broiler until toasted, about 2 minutes per side. Remove bread from oven and cool slightly, keeping broiler on.
  5. Blend fig spread in a blender or food processor until pureed. Spread about 1 teaspoon fig spread onto each toasted bread slice; top with Brie cheese and apple pieces. Sprinkle each crostini with oregano.
  6. Broil crostini in the preheated oven until Brie cheese is melted and browned, 1 to 2 minutes.

I served this tonight for company, and it was a hit! One thought there was too much cinnamon/cloves, but the others wanted the recipe for sure. I followed the directions as written using both mission and calimyrna figs. I used Jazz apples rather than Granny Smith. Be sure to not over bake the plain bread before adding the other ingredients, and I thought it was good to have the brie at room temp. Excellent appetizer! Thanks for making me look like a real pro, ShannonMcK!

I really liked these. I cheated and used a store bought fig jam (in cheese section). I can't get figs here most of the time. If you go this route, spread the jam thinly, it is sweet and can be overpowering. They were quick and tasty. Watch them though, they are easy to burn as with anything under the broiler. Also, I did not use the oregano. It just didn't seem right.
