    A crostini not only has to taste delicious, but it also has to look delicious. We eat with our eyes first after all. These crostini are visually stimulating and palate pleasing with color and texture to spare.

    Remember that you need to layer your flavors. When done well, it creates quite the bite. My crostinis are a mix of sweet and savory with some saltiness thrown in.

    These Prosciutto, Pear, and Brie Crostinis pair salty slices of prosciutto, with the creaminess of warm brie, the nuttiness of toasted baguettes, the crisp floral notes of pear, and a touch of honey to create the perfect bite.

    Great news! Pears are in season from September all the way through July.  I generally receive a few boxes of them around the holidays. I am always looking for a great pear recipe to help me use them all. Read crostinis!

    Here are two quickie hacks if you need them: Toast your bread ahead of time if you want a jump start. The brie can be served warm and bubbly or it can come straight from the fridge if you are short on time.

    Some people prefer to take the rind off of brie, but it was actually made to be edible. You don’t have to worry about cutting it off. If you want a decadent bite, for the triple creme brie for extra spread-ability and luxurious mouthfeel.

    Honey is optional, but I like the extra added sweetness it adds to the salty and savory aspects of the dish. If you are feeling really saucy, also give it a drizzle of olive oil and a bit of salt and pepper.
