Last week, while perusing the interwebs for interesting appetizers for our housewarming party, I stumbled upon this recipe* for apple, cranberry, sage bites. Seeing as they were quite different from what you typically expect in the form of an appetizer (read: prosciutto wrapped asparagus or pigs in a blanket), I immediately decided that these guys needed to be present. Since apples are at their tastiest at this moment, I had no doubt that the results would be delicious (and somewhat festive!) The combination of the sweeter ingredients set against the tartness of the goat cheese was absolutely divine. I was not the only one who thought so as they were the first to be devoured. As an added bonus, they were pleasing to the eye and looked great atop our table (yes, this makes me happy, don’t judge).
*I used goat cheese spread on the cracker instead of parmesan as the recipe recommends. It was a great combination! Also, I topped them with a hint of sea salt and cracked black pepper. Yum.
