Goat's-Milk Cheese Crostini with Honey
Total Time: 10
Yield: 12 crostini
This is a great recipe for your repertoire. Sweeten the cheese with honey as we do here, or top it with minced fresh herbs, pieces of dried fruit (such as figs, apricots, or cranberries), or roasted red peppers instead.
Ingredients:12 1/2-inch baguette slices
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons fresh local goat's-milk cheese
3 tablespoons honey
Kosher or sea salt and
freshly ground black pepper
Heat oven to 400°. Brush baguette slices lightly with olive oil. Toast for about 8 minutes, until golden. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Top each toast slice with 1-1/2 teaspoons cheese. Return to the oven and bake 7 minutes, until cheese is warm and very soft. Drizzle crostini with honey; then sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
