1 baguette
olive oil
12 asian pears, thinly sliced
1 package Président Spreadable Brie
fresh thyme


Preheat your oven to 350°F.

Slice the baguette into 1/4 inch thick slices and place on baking sheet. Drizzle them with olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt. Bake in the oven for approximately 10–12 minutes until lightly toasted and golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside.

Thinly slice the asian pears and set aside.

To build crostini, spread Président Spreadable Brie on piece of the toasted baguette and layer with a slice of pear, drizzle some honey and add sprigs of thyme.


When cutting pears, you can drizzle a small amount of lemon juice over the slices to keep them from browning too much.

The baguette can be a day old. It works best to make the crostini.
