Makes: About 20 crostini
If you want to really make these into a splashy appetizer, seek out a jar of truffle honey. But if regular honey is what is in your pantry (or in your budget!) then you’ll still be very happy.
- 1 baguette, sliced 1/3-inch thick (about 20 slices)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- Kosher salt to taste
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 2 just ripe pears, quartered cored, and thinly sliced lengthwise
- 10 very thin slices prosciutto, cut in half lengthwise
- ½ cup crumbled goat cheese
- 1 to 2 tablespoons honey
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
- Brush each of the baguette slices with the olive oil and place them side by side on the baking sheet. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
- Bake for about 5 minutes until the edges are lightly brown. Remember that they will harden as they cool, so take them out before they get too crisp.
- Place one or two thin slices of pear on each crostini, then fold a piece of prosciutto over the pear. Top with a bit of goat cheese, then a few drops of honey. Lightly sprinkle with a bit more salt.
