I couldn’t decide which picture to use, so I used them all.  They just look so pretty.  To get my cheesecake fix without spending hours baking one, I had some cream cheese, strawberries, and half a baguette left.  If you don’t have a spare artisan baguette laying around that you purchased at the  fancy gourmet section of your supermarket, use crackers.

Ingredients:

  • 12 in. baguette, sliced (16 pieces)
  • 1/2 block cream cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 3 Tbsp yogurt (vanilla or plain)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 8 strawberries, sliced in half
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar

Directions:

  1. Toast baguette slices if they are stale, in the toaster oven. 
  2. In small bowl, mix cream cheese, honey, yogurt, vanilla extract, sugar and cinnamon and nutmeg.
  3. Sprinkle 1 Tbsp. sugar onto strawberries, mix gently until strawberries looked glazed.
  4. Spoon cream cheese onto bread, garnish with slice of strawberry.
