I made this for a party and agree with the reviewer who said that the topping stays on well, making it easier to eat. It also has a lot of chopped mint, however, which I noticed in more than one person's teeth! The edamame topping can be made a day or two in advance, just bring it to room temp before using. The pears make it tasty -- the edamame doesn't have a ton of flavor, I primarily tasted the mint (which was nice with the pears). I liked that it was really healthy, and they are very pretty, but I don't know if I will do it again (unless I replace the edamame mixture with a chunk of melted brie!).

We took this to a party and everyone commented on how good it was and how surprised they were that it was edamame. Even people who said they don't like edamame enjoyed this. The combination of flavors is very satisfying and a little surprising. The other nice thing is that the topping stays on the crostini well, which makes it easy to nibble while standing up talking with people.
