      I personally did not care for this. I followed the directions exactly. While baking the crostini, the cream cheese mixture never got 'bubbly' as the instructions mentioned. The directions did not specify whether to butter the tops and bottoms of the crostini before putting the cream cheese mixture on top. I did butter both sides of the crostini.

      Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. Amazingly easy to make, and what a fantastic taste and presentation. I halved the cream cheese in the recipe, and it came out like a dream. I also used less garlic salt (about 1/4 tsp less) and I was more than pleased. This recipe will be a staple. Also easy for parties as you can prepare ahead and just pop in the oven.
