Blueberry Crostini

Creamy mascarpone offers a subtle base while juicy blueberries carry the theme of summer freshness. Basil's boldness and the muting quality of honey offer perfect counterparts.

  • 1 thin French baguette
  • Oil
  • ½ cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1½ cups fresh blueberries, washed and dried
