Easy Appetizers

We love to make an assortment of finger foods around New Year's and holiday get-togethers.

I have a wonderful roundup of 30 Appetizers you may like to try also.

Use any kind of jams, chutney, fresh fruits and nuts you like, and if you are worried about nut allergies, substitute pumpkin seeds the combinations can be endless just get creative.

For those who prefer to bake this is puff pastry, it's super simple, just leave the rind on, use an oil sprayed cookie sheet, add the cheese on the puff pastry (or even crescent rolls), top with jam and nuts, heat the same way.

  4. Using a small spatula spread the red raspberry jam on top and decorate evenly with whole pecans.
  5. Drizzle the walnut with honey, brown sugar, or maple syrup.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, until the pecans are toasted and the brie has melted.

  8. Top with fresh raspberries.
  9. Place on a board with assorted crackers, baguette bread rounds.
  10. Note:  warm some extra raspberry jam to pour over fresh raspberries, it's so delicious, or use pureed fresh raspberries with a little sugar or honey added.
