Baked brie with apples- April recipe of the month

We had something similar to this at the Blue Water Grill in Skaneateles (highly recommend this restaurant right on the lake). It was such a hit at the table, we decided to make it for breakfast as our fruit course. It would also make great hors d'oeuvres.

1 loaf French bread
1 lb brie
1/2 c chopped walnuts
2 Granny Smith apples, thinly sliced
1/2 c raspberry jam

Slice the French bread into thin slices, place on baking sheet. Slice the brie in thin slices and place one on top of each slice of bread. Sprinkle the walnuts around the bread on the baking sheet (or bake separately if no room). Warm the raspberry jam so it 'pours' and drizzle it over the walnuts. Bake at 350 degrees just until the cheese starts to melt.

Remove from baking sheet and place on serving tray, scatter walnuts around, place apples slices around bread, drizzle more warm raspberry jam, if needed, over apples and walnuts. Enjoy!
