Absolutely addicting! Oh my, have I found the perfect crostini recipe. How can you go wrong with cranberries, walnuts and gorgonzola cheese. These three ingredients are a match made in heaven. Definitely going into my Best of 2012 cookbook. If you are making this recipe for a gathering -- better have plenty on hand. Made for Fall PAC, 2012.
