Roasted Cinnamon Pear Bruschetta​:

Ingredients 

  • 1 whole grain baguette, sliced into rounds
  • 2 pears, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons Cinnamon Pear Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone (or substitute with cream cheese)
  • 1 teaspoon honey

 

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400. Lay baguette rounds on a baking sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes, or until golden brown and toasted. Set aside.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat and add butter. Add pears, then sprinkle with salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Allow to caramelize slowly - for about 10-15 minutes.
  3. In a bowl, combine mascarpone and honey. Spread on baguette slices.
  4. Once pears are caramelized, add balsamic vinegar and cook for 1-2 more minutes.
  5. Add spoonfuls of pear mixture on top of mascarpone on baguette. These can be served warm or cold.
