- 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
- Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
- 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.)
- Cut prosciutto into 24 pieces to drape over the baguette crostini slices.
- Cut Buttermilk Blue® into thin 1/2-inch pieces.
- 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.
