Simmer for 25 to 30 minutes, until the apples soften enough to mash into a rough paste…..

Leave some chunks for texture, we are not making apple sauce! Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.

While the apples are cooking, place the baguette slices on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake until toasted, golden brown…..

Lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Top each crostini with a small slice of Brie. Place in the oven and bake for about 5 minutes to soften the Brie…..

OMGosh, these are insanely delicious!! The Brie is very mild, and super soft. The rosemary gives the Apple Compote and Brie Crostini a boost of unexpected flavor that blends perfectly with the apples!!

Notes:

  • If Honeycrisp apples are not available, substitute Sweet Tango or Gala.
  • Refrigerate any leftovers. They can be reheated in the microwave for about 5 seconds each to bring them back to room temperature.
  • I use this potato masher to smash just about everything that needs to be smashed!! {affiliate link}
  • Yes, you leave the rind on the Brie. Weird I know, but you won’t notice it…at least I didn’t.

I purchased this wedge of Brie…..

and sliced it straight out of the refrigerator. It is very soft, and you slices will gradually get larger as you move towards the end…..

If your slices are too large, simply cut them in half to get them to fit. 😉 If you purchase a round Brie, simply cut it into wedges then slices.
