Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Set the pears on a cookie sheet lined with parchment. On a second cookie sheet, arrange the baguette slices and drizzle them with olive oil. Place both cookie sheets in the oven. Bake the pears for 8 minutes, or until just soft to the touch. Bake the baguettes for 10 minutes, or until light brown and crisp.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cinnamon, butter and 2 teaspoons water. Heat until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is a bit sticky but still runny.
  4. When the baguette is done, spread each slice with some goat cheese, then top with a slice of pear and drizzle with a little of the sugar mixture. Serve.

Cook’s Note

If serving at a party, try decorating each crostini with a small edible flower.
