Crostini Al Mascarpone

Crostini Al Mascarpone created by French Tart

This is a recipe I learned from a group of Italian women from the Tuscany region of Italy. They teach cooking classes under the name "Tutti-a-Tavola". This is one of my favorite appetizers to make on the run and is always a hit with guests. You can make up the cheese spread ahead of time and will keep for a couple of days in the refrigerator. Try to find a french baguette that is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

    Could you use another cheese? Goat cheese perhaps or fontina?

    WONDERFUL -- in capitals (because they are delicious and SO easy to make). I used fresh marjoram -- not sure how much, but enough to make sure it shined through in the cheese spread. I put some together and froze them. I'm anxious to see how they bake up. Five more stars if they come out as great as the "fresh" ones. This is a wonderful appetizer and one that I will be making many times over.
