This appetizer is always a huge hit when I make it. It tastes wonderful and is really easy to make. It makes a nice presentation.

I use Williams Sonoma Pumpkin Butter with pecans or Muirhead Pumpkin Pecan Butter (that is where Williams Sonoma gets theirs from!!)

Do not let the balsamic vinegar part scare you off. It really makes the appetizer Pop and tastes so good.
