Triple Crème & Pear Crostini
Champlain Valley Creamery’s Organic Champlain Triple is a beautiful soft ripened triple crème with a bloomy white rind. It has a rich, creamy interior flavor that is offset by a delicious earthy rind with hints of mushroom. It’s featured in our weekly sale this week, along with organic red pears and Jan’s Farmhouse Crisps. This recipe brings these three components together for a simple, delicious, sweet & savory appetizer perfect for holiday parties!
Combine balsamic vinegar, butter, and honey in a shallow pan over medium heat. Stir occasionally until mixture is reduced by half. Top each crisp with a smear of cheese, a slice of pear, and a drizzle of the honey balsamic reduction. Top with a toasted almond or pecan sliver. Serve cold, or pop into the oven for a few minutes before serving to serve warm.
