Prep time 20 mins
Cook time 5 mins
Yield 12 servings (serving size: 2 crostini)
This crostini is an amazing appetizer because it seems fancy but is so simple to make. The flavors of goat cheese, pear and prosciutto work together perfectly.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled goat cheese
  • 7 teaspoons 1% low-fat milk
  • 24 thin slices French bread baguette, lightly toasted, or 24 crisp croissant crackers (such as Carr's, available nationwide)
  • 3 thin slices prosciutto, coarsely chopped
  • 2 ripe but firm Bartlett or Comice pears, cored and cut into 12 wedges

How to Make It

  1. Combine cheese and milk to form a spreadable (but not wet) consistency. Spread about 1 teaspoon of the mixture evenly over each baguette slice.

  2. Cook prosciutto in a nonstick skillet, stirring frequently over medium heat until crisp (about 5 minutes). Transfer to a paper towel to drain.

  3. Place 1 pear wedge on each baguette slice; arrange attractively on a serving platter. Sprinkle prosciutto over appetizers.
