Great news! It’s peach week! This time of year I’m all about peaches and incorporate them into just about everything. They are one of my favorite flavors for summer.

These pretty little peach crostinis have quickly become my favorite summer snack! They’re beautiful, easy to serve and easy to eat for summer entertaining, but also make a sweet afternoon treat.

I paired peaches with my favorite cheeses, honey, and thyme on crispy crostinis. You can get all of the details by downloading the free Garden Party kit here on Better Homes and Gardens!

If you are planning to serve these at a summer party, be sure to pair them with my prosecco sangria and peach sweet tea!

Peach Crostini Ingredients

For The Crostini

  • French Baguette – Slice the baguette into 1/2 inch slices at an angle. Too thin and they won’t support the toppings, and too thick these appetizers become all about the bread.
  • Olive Oil – A little olive oil helps to crisp and brown the bread. Melted butter or canola oil can also be used.
  • Sea Salt – I like to add a little flakey sea salt to really help the flavors of the toppings come through.

Toppings

  • Cheese – Use your favorite cheese to top the crostini. I like to use a mixture of goats cheese, ricotta or burrata. I find creamy cheeses work the best.
  • Peaches – Make the most of summers’ produce, a slice of fresh peach works so well with the salty and creamy cheese.
  • Honey – Honey and peaches are a great combination! It’s the perfect topping to these sweet and savory peach crostinis.
  • Thyme – I like to sprinkle over some thyme leaves for a hint of earthy freshness. Mint, basil, terragon, rosemary and lemongrass also work well.

How To Make Peach Crostini

  • Prep – Slice the baguette and the peaches.
  • Bake – Line the sliced bread on a baking sheet and brush with the oil and a sprinkle of salt. Broil until just toasted.
  • Make – Place some cheese on each crostini, top with a peach slice, drizzle of honey and thyme leaves.

Tips

How To Choose The Best Peaches

Peaches are in season from the beginning of May through til late September, with peak season in July and August. Peaches get sweeter and juicier as they ripen. To check their ripeness, gently press near the top of the stem, if they give a little they are ready to go!

Can You Use Frozen Peaches?

Fresh is best for these peach crostini. Frozen peach slices contain too much liquid that can cause your crostini to get soggy.

How To Store

  • Room Temperature – Make crostini ahead of time and store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. Top when ready to serve.
  • Refrigerate – These peach crostini appetizers are best served within an hour or two of making them. Before serving, keep them covered in the fridge.
