Ingredients: (Serves 4-6)
- 1 whole grain baguette, sliced into rounds
- 2 pears, chopped (Red Bartlett)
- 1 TBSP Olive Sprig Butter Olive Oil
- 1/4 TSP salt
- 1/2 TSP cinnamon
- Pinch of nutmeg
- 2 TBSP Olive Sprig Cinnamon Pear Balsamic
- 1/2 cup mascarpone
- 1 TSP honey
Preheat the oven to 400 F. Lay the baguette rounds on a baking sheet and bake them for 5-7 minutes, or until they are golden brown and toasted. Set the rounds aside.
Heat a skillet over medium-low heat and add Butter Olive Oil. Add the chopped pears to the skillet and sprinkle them with salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Allow them to caramelize slowly for about 10-15 minutes.
In a bowl, combine the mascarpone and honey. Spread this mixture onto the toasted baguette rounds.
Once the pears are caramelized, add Cinnamon Pear Balsamic to the skillet and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes. Add spoonfuls of the pear mixture on top of the mascarpone baguette rounds.
Note: These can be served warm or cold.
