Whipped Blue Cheese & Apple Canapés
Serves: 12
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons (3 ounces) Gorgonzola cheese, room temperature
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup unsalted Irish butter*, softened, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

  • 12 (¼-inch-thick) round slices Honeycrisp apple (approximately 3 small apples)
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
