  • 24 baguette slices, sliced diagonally
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 Asian pear, cut into 24 thin slices
  • 1/4 pound (4 ounces) very thinly-sliced prosciutto
  • 1 cup (about 6 ounces) Roth Buttermilk Blue® cheese
  • Honey or thyme-infused honey*
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place baguette slices on a baking sheet. Brush lightly with olive oil, and sprinkle lightly with salt. Bake 4 to 5 minutes until edges start to turn golden brown. Remove and let cool. (They will firm up as they cool, so don’t overbake them.)
  3. Cut prosciutto into 24 pieces to drape over the baguette crostini slices.
  4. Cut Buttermilk Blue® into thin 1/2-inch pieces.
  5. Layer a piece of pear, a piece of prosciutto and a couple of pieces of cheese on each baguette slice. Lightly drizzle each crostini with the honey. Give a quick grind of pepper over the top.

*How to Make Thyme-Infused Honey

Place fresh thyme sprigs, rinsed and dried, to fill a jar about half full. (You can curl them into a ring so they fit nicely and look pretty in the jar.)

Pour in honey until it fills the jar while ensuring thyme is submerged. Allow honey to sit at least 5 days (or up to 2 weeks). The longer the thyme remains in honey, the more pronounced the flavor will be. Strain honey into a clean jar. Honey can be used for months.
