  • 1 medium apple, such as Rome Beauty or Jonathan, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut up

  • 32 -36 1/4-inch slices baguette-style French bread, toasted
  • 8 ounces soft goat cheese (chevre)
  • Fresh cilantro or parsley leaves (optional)

  2. Cover and cook on low 5 to 6 hours or high 2-1/2 to 3 hours. (If no heat setting is available, cook 4 hours.)
