Caramelized Fig and Ricotta CrostiniWine Pairings: Chardonnay
- 12 slices of baguette
- 4 fresh figs, sliced into thirds lengthwise
- 8 ounces part skim ricotta cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon butter
- 1 teaspoon honey, plus more for drizzling on top
- 2 tablespoons shelled pistachios, chopped
In a small mixing bowl, mix together the ricotta cheese, salt, and pepper until combined.
In a medium sized skillet over medium heat, melt the butter and honey together.
Place the sliced figs in with the honey butter mixture and cook them for 1-2 minutes per side or until they start to caramelize.
While the figs are caramelizing toast the baguette slices in the oven under the broiler or on the grill until golden brown.
Spread some of the ricotta onto each baguette slice then top with a caramelized fig slice, chopped pistachios, and a drizzle of honey.
