Although you might be craving for something comforting and warm these chilly days, these Spiced Maple Apple Crostini would still be a delicious seasonal option for your weekend brunch.

October or November? Don’t Feel the Difference!

As I mentioned in my previous post, I am having quite hectic days this November. Well, even though it’s still October, my days do look like it’s November.

I might be cooking something fancy on weekends, but I always happy to make and eat something simple yet scrumptious. And what could be easier than bruschetta or crostini (We aren’t discussing the options like bread and peanut butter or bread and cheese)?

Crostini – Simple or Sophisticated Food?

This year I’ve enjoyed bruschettas and crostini quite often. You may say I’ve been rather lazy to make more sophisticated food. I’ll tell you this might be a fancy thing. Let me remind you some lovely ideas:

Blackberry Lavender Goat Cheese Crostini

Goat Cheese Cardamom Cherry Crostini

Ricotta Fig Lavender Crostini

As you can see, I might be partial to fruit kind of toasts.

Spiced Maple Apple Crostini – Perfect Seasonal Treat

This October I created this Spiced Maple Apple Crostini – an absolutely seasonal food. The combo of apples sauteed in butter with maple syrup, cardamom, and cinnamon is truly hearty and earthy! Served over slightly salty cream cheese, the topping is exceptionally delicious.

And would you like a free piece of advice, my friends? Add a little (or not really little) splash of whiskey or bourbon in the sauce. Because you know both whiskey and bourbon work great with maple syrup, apples, and butter. Some things cannot be separated, you know. That’s a little sad that I generated such an awesome idea only while writing this blog post.

But you are going to be smart and add some booze, aren’t you?

Anyways, with or without alcohol, the Spiced Maple Apple Crostini are the perfect seasonal food.

    These crostini look so pretty and just perfect for a beautiful fall weekend breakfast. Just by looking at your pictures, I can almost smell the cinnamon-y, cardamom-y apples…..and now that’s all I want to eat! :)
    Oh, and love the idea of adding a little whiskey or bourbon to the apples, sounds simply amazing!

    I love a good crostini! They feel so fancy, but they are so easy to make. This one definitely sounds like it’s up my alley…and there’s no lavender in it! The splash of bourbon definitely needs to happen, too. In fact, I might splash the mixture with bourbon and then splash my mouth with some more. Is that allowed when cooking? Also, you named this Spiced in honor of me, right? ;-) Have a great weekend, Ben!
