Crostini with Mascarpone, Fresh Berries and Drizzled Honey
These little toasts are just the thing for an afternoon tea or as an elegant end to a meal. Mascarpone is a very soft rich cheese that tastes a little bit like sour cream but is much denser in texture. The creamy cheese contributes a textural contrast to the crisp toast, tart berries and sweet honey. These take just a few minutes to put together so consider serving this when you are pressed for time. Serve a fruity after dinner wine to complete the meal.
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 12½-inch slices French Bread
  • ¼ cup Mascarpone
  • 1 pint favorite ripe berries like blackberries or raspberries
  • ¼ cup fragrant honey like orange blossom, white truffle or lavender
  1. Toast the French bread slices. Arrange on a platter and smear about a teaspoon of Mascarpone on each bread slice. Arrange a few berries on top and then a light drizzle of honey. Serve immediately.
The Clever Cook Could: Do a variation of this idea: arrange a soft creamy blue cheese, a strong cheddar and a Triple cream cheese on a basket. Have slices of a toasted raisin nut bread around the cheese. Place a pot of White Truffle Honey or any other unusual variety in the basket. Let your guests make their own selection and make sure to have them drizzle the cheese and bread with a bit of honey
