Last week, we had some friends over before heading up the street to Bar+Kitchen to check out their cocktails and DineLA menu. Since I knew I wouldn't have much time to prepare something before they came over and we wouldn't have much to time to snack on it, I wanted to find a super quick appetizer to go along with our pre-dinner cocktail. I spotted this photo on Pinterest a while back and I just happened to already have all the ingredients on hand.
This is by far one of the quickest appetizers I have ever made and the taste is truly spectacular given how simple the ingredients are. I was afraid the goat cheese would overshadow the entire thing, but the flavors of the tart cranberrries and sweet pear really balance out the creamy cheese. The best thing about this dish is you could easily make it in countless different variations based on what you have available such as using apple slices topped with brie, slivered almonds and honey.
