I'm a big believer in always having a mixture of sweet and savory in each course. This applies to hors d'oeuvres as well. Slide a few of these sweet but cheesy crostini in with your other party bites and watch your guests smile! —foxeslovelemons

What You'll Need
  • 1/2 whole grain baguette, sliced diagonally 1/4-inch thick (about 12 pieces)
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 12 dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup ricotta
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 12 small fresh mint leaves
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray baguette slices with cooking spray. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp, turning once.
  2. Meanwhile, place apricots in small bowl; cover with very warm tap water. Let stand 10 minutes. In separate small bowl, stir together ricotta and cinnamon.
  3. Spread ricotta mixture on crostini. Sprinkle crostini with almonds. Remove apricots from soaking liquid and drain on paper towel. Place 1 apricot on each crostini. Drizzle crostini with honey and garnish with mint leaves. Serve immediately.
