1 Prepare the ingredients

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the baguette lengthwise. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Roughly chop the onions. In a bowl, combine the sour cherry spread and 1 teaspoon of water. Season with salt and pepper; stir to combine.

2 Make the crostini & serve your dish

Line a sheet pan with foil. Transfer the halved baguette to the sheet pan, cut side up. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Evenly top with the grated cheese. Bake 9 to 11 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the bread is lightly browned. Remove from the oven. Top with the sour cherry mixture and chopped onions. When cool enough to handle, cut each half into 4 equal-sized pieces. Enjoy!
