What's your favorite food? I never know how to answer that question so I usually give chocolate as an impulsive answer without really giving it much thought. But, if I really search the depths of my soul, I would have to say that my love of fresh raspberries trumps my love of chocolate. There's just something special about those little bright red fruity gems.
My wonderful husband surprised me a raspberry pie from my favorite raspberry farm for my birthday this year. (Doesn't everyone have a favorite raspberry farm?) Sometimes I think Ben knows me better than I know myself, but then again, it didn't really take much deductive research to figure out that I'm obsessed with raspberries. I blogged about them here, and here and here.
Even though I often overlook the apprized raspberry, I am always delightfully surprised at just how happy they make me. These little ricotta toasts are one of my new favorite way to enjoy raspberries. It doesn't hurt that pistachios also hold a place near and dear to my heart. Oh, and ricotta cheese is my guilty pleasure so when you drizzle in a little bit of honey over these tiny creations - ridiculous. This recipe couldn't be any easier - or more delicious.
Raspberry Ricotta Toasts
1 cup ricotta
1 Tablespoon honey
4 slices country bread, toasted
pistachios, roughly chopped
Top with fresh raspberries, pistachios and a drizzle of honey.
This is one of those delicious foods that crosses all traditional food boundaries. It's the perfect brunch food, a delightful little side dish for a ladies luncheon, an elegant appetizer, a sweet little dessert or if you're me ... it's DINNER. I struggled to figure out where to put them in my recipe index. Breakfast foods, appetizers and desserts all seemed like perfectly appropriate places to add this delicious treat. (Just in case your curious, the recipe landed on the appetizers page of my recipe index.)
