One of my favorite appetizers. A twist on the traditional cheddar welsh rarebit. I love welsh rarebit and I love blue cheese; the tart apple makes for a delectable trio.

Arrange an oven rack to 4" from broiler and heat broiler to high. Mix cheese, crème fraiche, Worcestershire, Dijon, honey, salt and pepper, in a small bowl.
Spread about 1 tbsp. of the cheese mixture over each toast bite. Broil until topping is melted and golden brown, about 4 minutes.
