Grilled Peach Crostini

Peaches are probably my favorite fruit- but only in the summer when they are local and so sweet and juicy. One of my favorite desserts of all time is probably my mom's peach pie with the crumble top. 

I made this crostini as a light appetizer and it was absolutely delicious! You can judge how many you want to make- I am not even going to put down quantities. Enjoy this now while the peaches are still delicious! 

-fresh peaches, washed and cut in half
-goats cheese (Rivers Edge if available)
-fresh thyme 
-fresh baguette 
-olive oil 
-salt and pepper

I oiled the grill and put the peaches on medium/high heat. Let them grill for a few minutes on each side until they are extra soft and juicy. 

Slice your baguette and brush each side (generously) with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake the bread on a tray in a 350 degree oven for 15-18 minutes until nice and crispy and lightly golden. Make sure to flip them about half way through. 

Mix your goats cheese with some freshly chopped thyme and ground pepper. Spread the cheese on the crostini when they come out of the oven and top with a slice of grilled peach. To finish, drizzle with honey. Enjoy many.
