Brandied Cheddar Cheese/Pecan/Pear Crostini

 

Company coming? This is a great way to show them you want them there.

Serves 4

  • 4 oz. crumbled cheese
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. brandy
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 16 baguette slices
  • 1 red skinned pear, thinly sliced

Preparation: Turn broiler on.

Make sure cheese and butter are at room temperature. Mash with a fork until smooth. Stir in brandy and add to the cheese mixture. Place baguettes on a cookie sheet, toasting one side under the broiler. Remove from the oven and on the untoasted side, add a slice of pear and top with a tsp. of the cheese mixture.

Broil four to six inches from the broiler for about two minutes or until it gets bubbly.

It is soooo scrumptuous and wonderfully different from the usual. Company will truly love it.

Stir in brandy and pecans and add to the cheese mixture. Place baguettes on a cookie sheet. Toast one side under the broiler, turn and place slice of pear on the untoasted side and top with a teaspoonful of the cheese mixture.

Broil four-five inches from heat for about two minutes or until the cheese becomes bubbly.

Serving: Use small individual plates with spreader knives. Use a fresh cloth napkin (not paper) and your guests will take notice. They may not say anything, but they will notice. If you have an IKEA near you, a Dollar Store Outlet or even Costco you can purchase plates and spreader knives for only a couple of dollars.  Keep them aside and use them just for your dinners.
