For me there’s no better way to start a party than with a beautiful appetizer! This Spiced Pear and Pomegranate Crostini is definitely one you need to add to your repertoire during the winter months. The soft and fragrant spiced pears paired with the crunchy and bright pomegranate are the perfect match! Then there’s the cinnamon maple sauce which tops your crostini. Let’s just put it this way, when I made this it turned out to be our dinner because we just couldn’t stop eating them. We loved it!

    Oh my goodness, do these crostini look good or what?! I’ve never put pear and pomegranate on a piece of bread before, but the ingredients and the final product look fantastic, and I have no doubt I’d love them. Pinning this for later!
