Pear, Walnut, and Ricotta Crostini

This beautifully simplistic appetizer is a real crowd-pleaser. Fluffy, rich ricotta, tender, sweet pear slices, and toasty, crunchy walnuts all come together with a drizzle of honey over crostini — perfection! If you wanted to go bold, sub a creamy blue cheese for the ricotta, like gorgonzola dolce.

Spoon these flavorful toppings over Simple Crostini or toast from a country-style loaf. Each recipe makes enough for 16 small or 8 large crostini.
