Tartines with Orange-Honey Mascarpone
Chef Tamara Westerhold
These tartines, a fancy name for crostini or cheese toasts, require only six simple ingredients, and the result is a quick but impressive-looking canape for a holiday table. Chef Tamara Westerhold relies on this easy recipe when she preps for parties through her company, Cherubina Catering.
4 slices sourdough or French baguette
3/4 cup mascarpone cheese
1 tbsp. grated orange zest
2½ tbsp. honey, divided
Chopped toasted pistachios
Mini dark chocolate chips
Pinch of salt
1. Lightly toast bread slices. In medium bowl, mix cheese, orange zest, 2 tablespoons honey, toasted pistachios, chocolate chips and salt until well blended.
2. Slather a generous amount of cheese mixture on each slice of toasted bread; drizzle a little honey on top. Serve immediately.
