What's not to love about figs and brie cheese. So good together! But add walnuts and they are even better.
I really wanted to make a crostini that is super simple to put together just with a few turns of the food processor. I also didn't want folks to have to go buy fig jam (borrring!) when you can use dried figs and some wonderful natural ingredients together, not a ton of sugar and end up with something fabulous!
We can all do with more of this during the holidays with all the potlucks and family gatherings we have to prep for.
So with a bit of dish of this and a dash of that, I think these flavors work really well together; dried figs, walnuts, olive oil, brown sugar, garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil and Marsala wine but you could use any sweet wine or sweet Spanish sherry too. Why not!
I've also chosen not to melt the cheese but rather serve the fig on warm good good quality bread but by all means if you want to pop these in the oven to get the cheese a little melty, I say go for it!
Happy Holidays one and all!
