We had a baby shower here at work this week, and I made these crostini as a contribution to the array of sweet treats we had to celebrate. Normally, when I make them at home, they’re delicious. This time around I made them the night before, and then stuck them in the fridge at work until we surprised the mom to be. By the time they were served I think that the bread got a bit soggy from sitting. So learn from my mistake, and if you whip them up, do so closer to when they will actually be eaten. They’re incredibly easy to make, and make a great hors d’oeuvre for friends. They’ll fall in love as soon as you put this mixture of sweet, nutty, cheesyness in front of them.
