  1. Combine figs, vinegar, brown sugar, onion, ginger, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, cloves, and cinnamon in a saucepan; simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until fig spread is reduced, about 30 minutes. Transfer fig spread to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate, 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  3. Arrange bread slices on a baking sheet. Lightly spray both sides of each bread slice with olive oil cooking spray.
  4. Bake bread slices under the broiler until toasted, about 2 minutes per side. Remove bread from oven and cool slightly, keeping broiler on.
  5. Blend fig spread in a blender or food processor until pureed. Spread about 1 teaspoon fig spread onto each toasted bread slice; top with Brie cheese and apple pieces. Sprinkle each crostini with oregano.
  6. Broil crostini in the preheated oven until Brie cheese is melted and browned, 1 to 2 minutes.

Holy moly these are delicious! I made these for breakfast, and my husband and I loved them! The only thing I didn't do is puree the spread; I don't think it needed it. The flavors meld so nicely...

These were absolutely delicious. Made them exactly as the recipe says and they were very tasty.

This was great and simple to make. I made it Christmas Eve and it was a hit!

Nice recipe. May be a little too sweet with both the brown sugar and the figs. I may try reducing the brown sugar next time. All in all this was a great starter for dinner.
