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!
