Double Cranberry Crostini

Ingredients
1
recipe Cranberry-Ginger Chutney (see recipe below)
1/3
cup dried cranberries
2
3 ounce package cream cheese, softened
2
tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted
1
teaspoon finely chopped, peeled fresh ginger
1
teaspoon lime juice
1
16 ounce loaf baguette-style French bread
4
ounces thinly sliced smoked turkey or ham

Directions

  1. Prepare Cranberry-Ginger Chutney; let cool. Preheat oven to 375 degree F. Place dried cranberries in a small bowl with enough boiling water to cover; cover and let stand 15 minutes. Drain well. In a medium mixing bowl beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in drained cranberries, pecans, ginger, and lime juice; set aside.
  2. Slice baguette diagonally into 1/2-inch slices. Place on a large baking sheet (use two sheets if necessary to fit all the slices in one layer). Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until edges just start to brown. Cool slightly. Cut smoked turkey into about 30 pieces to fit on bread slices. Spread bread with cranberry-cheese mixture. Top each with a piece of turkey. Dollop with Cranberry-Ginger Chutney.
