    4      lg            Granny Smith apples
    2      tbsps         unsalted butter
    1      large wheel   brie, unripe

      1/2  c             raisins
      1/4  c             sugar
      1/4  c             honey
      1/3  c             sliced almonds -- lightly toasted

    1      loaf          crusty bread -- sliced
 
 Peel, quarter and slice apples.  Sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent
 discoloring; set aside.
 Melt  butter over medium heat in a large saucepan.  Add onions and saute
 until lightly brown and caramelized.  Remove from pan to a plate; set
 aside.  Add honey and sugar to pan and stir until it has liquified.  Add
 apples and continue stirring until apples are almost cooked.  Add grapes
 and raisins. Continue cooking until sugar has caramelized.
 Pour the apple mixture into a 2 quart ceramic souffle dish or other
 ovenproof dish.  Sprinkle with the toasted almonds.
 Cut brie into 1 chunks and spread evenly over the apple mixture.  Bake
 uncovered at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese has melted and
 turned lightly golden.
 Serve warm with slices of toasted french bread or crackers
