Crostini That Borrows from a Classic Dessert
Canned pumpkin may be indispensable for pies, muffins and breads, but we've found a surprisingly new use for it: on toast with pre-dinner drinks. This no-fuss recipe involves blending pumpkin puree, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, olive oil and a clove of roasted garlic in the food processor until smooth, then spreading a dollop of the sweet and savory spread on pieces of bread. Garnishes such as pine nuts, pecans, bacon or Parmesan are optional over-the-top touches.
