Pear Pecan Crostini


Thursday, January 01, 2004
Appetizers-Side Dish
Serves 10 to 12
10 ounces blue cheese (Roquefort, Gorgonzola or Stilton)
5 tablespoons heavy cream
15 slices Panera Bread Cinnamon Raisin bread, crusts removed
2 Bartlett pears, thinly sliced into wedges about 1 1/2 inch long
1/3 cup pecan halves, thinly sliced crosswise
Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl combine the cheese and cream. Using a fork or wooden spoon, combine until the mixture is soft enough to spread but not too runny. Set aside.

Cut bread into 1 1/2 inch squares. Transfer bread squares to a baking sheet. Toast in oven until light golden - about 6 minutes on each side. Remove from oven.

Spread one heaping teaspoon cheese mixture on each Crostini. Top each with a pear wedge and garnish with pecan slices. Serve at room temperature.
