Blackberry Goat Cheese Crostini

Blackberry Goat Cheese Crostini


• 1/ 4 cup cream cheese
• 1 cup goat cheese
• salt, to taste
• pepper, to taste

• 1 Pane Rustico Rustic Baguette
• 1/ 3 cup honey
• 1 large sprig of fresh thyme
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 3/ 4 cup fresh blackberries
• 1/ 4 cup fresh basil, chopped
• 1 lime, zested


① Crumble cream cheese and goat cheese into the bowl of a food processor. Blend for 10 seconds or so, then scrape down the sides of the bowl and add salt and pepper to taste. Blend again for 10-20 seconds until cheese is creamy and well-blended.
② Scoop whipped goat cheese into a small bowl and set aside.

① Pour honey into a small saucepan. Add thyme sprig to honey and stir to combine.
② Warm honey over very low heat for 10-15 minutes to help it absorb the thyme flavor. Remove from heat and set aside to cool briefly while you prep the rest of the crostini ingredients.
③ Lay baguette slices in a single layer on a sheet pan. Drizzle bread with olive oil and bake at 375 degrees until bread is lightly toasted, about 4-7 minutes.
④ Top each crostini with a teaspoon or so of whipped goat cheese spread, then 1 or 2 blackberries. Sprinkle chopped basil and a pinch of lime zest over each crostini.
⑤ Finally, use a small spoon to drizzle a bit of warm honey over each crostini. Serve immediately.
