Cory really likes Brie and crackers. While at Trader Joe's the other day I picked up some Triple Cream. This cheese is similar to Brie , in that it is soft and spreadable. I notice that it often times does not have a strong flavor or smell. BOY, were we in for a surprise with this new stuff. The aroma was very strong. I thought it had a strong smell of Stilton. Kind of stinky. I tried some on a cracker and it had a strong flavor too. Not terrible, but I felt it needed a topping.
So, of course, I had to grab the camera and share this with you this morning. It's simple. It's easy. It's delicious! I could also do this with peaches, pears or apricots. I think this is why cheese, fruit and wine go so well together. The flavors blend and they each enhance the other. ENJOY!
|The crackers that I use are by Schar. They are gluten-free and so good.|
