Roasted Cinnamon Pear Bruschetta


1 whole grain baguette, cut into round slices
2 pears, chopped (I used red bartlett)
1 T butter
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
2 T Sparrow Lane Cinnamon Pear Vinegar
1/2 cup mascarpone
1 tsp honey

walnuts (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lay baguette rounds on a baking sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes, or until golden brown and toasted. Set aside.
2. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat and add butter. Add pears, then sprinkle with salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Allow to caramelize slowly – for about 10-15 minutes.
3. In a bowl, combine mascarpone and honey. Spread on baguette slices.
4. Once pears are caramelized, add balsamic vinegar and cook for 1-2 more minutes. Add spoonfuls of pear mixture on top of mascarpone on baguette and top with walnuts. These can be served warm or cold.
