Tips and tricks in making this persimmon crostini recipe:

There are two types of persimmons available in the market. We want to use only Fuyu variety for this recipe with persimmons. Select ripe ( not too squishy), sweet ones. 

Goat cheese need to be at room temperature. It makes it easier to spread helps in making the caramel walnuts and persimmon to stay intact. 

Salted butter is key – The salt elevates the honey toasted baguette. If you are unsalted butter, then add 1/8 teaspoon salt to the honey butter. 

You could choose to chop the candied walnuts and sprinkle or leave them whole. I preferred to leave them whole for presentation purposes.

  • 5 tablespoons salted butter, room temperature
  • 5 tablespoons honey
  • 2 large ripe Fuyu persimmons, peeled and sliced
  • 8 ounces goat cheese, room temperature

Instructions

    Spread honey-butter on one side of each baguette slice and place (buttered side up) on the prepared baking sheet (in a single layer).
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, until toasted (golden in the middle and darker around the edges). Keep a close eye during the last couple of minutes, so that it doesn't get burned.

    Toasted baguette can be made several hours ahead and stored in an air tight container.

To assemble crostini

  • Spread some goat cheese over the top of each baguette slice. Top with a few slices of persimmon and candied walnuts ( you can leave the candied walnuts whole or chop them).
