Creamy mascarpone and crunchy pistachios are perfect partners in these quick-and-easy snacks.
oz mascarpone cheese (about 1/2 cup), softened
slices (1/4 inch thick) baguette French bread
cup pistachio nuts (about 2 oz), coarsely chopped
tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
Heat oven to 350°F. Spread cheese on each bread slice. Place in single layer in ungreased 15x10x1-inch pan. Sprinkle nuts over cheese.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges of bread are light golden.
Drizzle honey over top of each toast. Garnish with basil.
If mascarpone isn't available, you can still make these tasty toasts. Use 4 ounces of cream cheese, softened, instead.
Spray your tablespoon with cooking spray to keep the honey from sticking when you measure it.
