Crostini recipes continue with a classic goat cheese and blackberry crostini. With fresh mint on top, it’s a delicious and easy appetizer. If you haven’t checked my other crostini recipe check out a springtime party favorite Fava Bean and Manchego Cheese Crostini.
This is such a great appetizer because you can make the toppings in advance. The night before you make the compote and whip the goat cheese and cream. Honestly, you could even skip whipping the goat cheese and use it straight from the package if you are pressed for time or just don’t feel like it. When you’re ready to serve you make your easy crostini, then assemble the goat cheese, blackberry mix, and top with a mint leaf or two and you are done. Easy party appetizer!
