4 ounces fresh goat cheese
1 French baguette
Zest of 1 lemon
1 Tbsp. heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
Begin by gathering your ingredients. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Thinly slice your baguette into 1/2″ rounds and lay them on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt, and bake them four about 5 minutes, flip over, and bake on the second side until golden.
Allow the toasted rounds to cool. In a separate bowl, combine the goat cheese with one tablespoon of heavy cream, zest of one lemon, salt, and pepper. The cream lightens the cheese up so that it is more spreadable. The lemon zest gives the buttery goat cheese a pop of flavor.
To prepare the appetizer, spread the goat cheese over each toasted bread round. Spoon the Blackberry Brandy Jam over the goat cheese. Enjoy!
