    Crostini With Mango and Mascarpone

    Chef Jamie Roraback prepares crostini with mango and vanilla-ginger mascarpone. (Published Sunday, May 13, 2018)

    • 1 mango - peeled, seeded, diced
    • 20 French bread slices - sliced 1/3” thick
    • 1/2 cup melted butter – 1 stick
    • 1/2 cup sugar

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Lay slices of bread out on cookie sheet. Brush both sides with the melted butter. Sprinkle the top of each bread slice with the sugar. Bake for about 8 minutes until light golden, slightly crisp.

    • 1 cup mascarpone or cream cheese - soften to room temperature
    • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
    • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract or 1 tsp vanilla bean powder

    Combine ingredients in bowl. Using a rubber scraper, mix gently until smooth. Makes 20 small crostinis.

    To assemble the crostinis, spread or pipe the cheese mixture onto the baked crostinis. Top with a spoonful of the mango. Place on serving plate and enjoy!
