Keep this easy spread simple with a few crackers, or stir in some walnuts or dried cranberries and serve it on square slices of rye.
The Runaway Spoon
Here’s a fun fall snack that features beautiful green apples and nutty Gruyère cheese. A great spread on hearty wheat crackers, this also makes a wonderful sandwich filling that’s particularly suited to rye bread. In fact, those little square slices of party rye are great for an appetizer or little tea sandwiches.
This is a basic blueprint that is fabulous on its on, but feel free to stir in some pecan or walnut pieces, or some dried cranberries.
