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


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.
