A Christmas Tea: Sweet Pear and Cheese Crostini

For those who don’t like blue cheese, try taleggio instead.

16 3/8 inch thick baguette style French bread slices
4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled OR 8 ounces taleggio cheese, rind removed
2 small ripe pears, cored and very thinly sliced
2 tablespoons flavored honey

Preheat broiler. Place bread slices on baking sheet. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 30 to 60 seconds or till bread is toasted. Turn each slice and top with some of the cheese. Broil 30-60 seconds more or till cheese is bubbly and bread is toasted. Top each bread slice with a pear slice and lightly drizzle with honey. Arrange bread slices on a serving platter and serve immediately.
