Ingredients

  • 1 baguette
  • 1/2 cup soft cheese (we used Tofutti cream cheese)
  • 2 tablespoons local honey
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • mint leaves (for garnish)
  • 2 cups fresh blackberries

Instructions

  1. Slice baguette into 1/2 inch thick slices. Brush each side of bread with olive oil. In a large grill pan on high heat, toast baguette slices for 2-3 minutes each side or until crispy and slightly golden. Alternately you can use the outdoor grill.

  2. Spread a layer of soft cheese on each baguette slice and top with blackberries cut in half (optional, but it will save the berries from falling off the crostini - I have a feeling your guests will thank you!). Drizzle lightly with honey, top with a small mint leaf, and serve!
