    Ham, Goat Cheese & Cherry Crostinis Appetizer

    ½ cup unsweetened dried cherries 4 oz creamy goat cheese


    ½ cup cherry wine or sweet
    red wine
    2 oz smoked ham, thinly sliced
    1 baguette, sliced ½-1 inch thick ¼ cup unsalted nuts, crushed
    1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil 1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves
    Dash coarse salt 2 Tbsp honey

    Place dried cherries and wine in a jar fitted with a lid. Allow cherries to soak for 2 or more hours, until plump. Drain.

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place baguette slices on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake in the oven for 7-8 minutes, until crisp. Allow to cool.

    Spread a thick layer of goat cheese on each crostini. Top each with a slice of thin ham, a tablespoon of wine-soaked cherries, a teaspoon of nuts and a few thyme leaves. Drizzle each crostini with a teaspoon of honey and a dash of coarse salt. Serve.

    Serves 8
