Apple and Gorgonzola Crostini With Lavender Honey

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

Mmmmm! Compliments of Sav-On/Albertson's Grocery Store chain. I subbed apple for pear. No worries if you don't have lavender honey. Simply add one half teaspoon crushed dried culinary lavender to regular honey.

This was wonderful! A crowd pleaser. Made for fathers day. I used Recipe #63539 for the honey. I did double the recipe dicing the apple and mixing in the cheese and honey. Toasted the Baguette on the grill and had everyone top the toast as a dip. Thanks!
