Pumpkin & Brie Bites

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Butter is back on the shelves and I bought a bag full this weekend!  It's a yummy treat that really goes with just about everything, so this time in preparation for a few last minute visitors I quickly paired it with creamy-salty accompaniments for a super rich small bite... Give it a try!

3 items:  Marcona almonds seasoned with sea salt and rosemary, triple creme French brie, Trader Joe's Pumpkin Butter
Use a basic butter cracker (skip anything with a flavor) or a fresh baguette, allow the brie to soften to about room temperature so it's easier to spread, drizzle with a bit of the pumpkin butter and top it off with a nice, salty almond.  The flavors combined are pure heaven!
This goes best with a slightly sweet and bubbly Prosecco ~ Nino Franco is one of my favorites!
Wrap a jar up pretty with a mini spoon, parchment paper and some twine and deliver as a hostess gift!  Nothing says LOVE like pumpkin butter ;)
