I thought that this smooth, creamy, and sweet cottage cheese would make for the perfect base topping for this crostini recipe. I then macerated fresh dark cherries in light brown sugar, sprinkled with almond slices and chopped mint and a drizzle of local honey for even more flavor. Every bite is the perfect balance of sophisticated flavors of creamy cottage cheese, tart cherries, fresh mint, and sweet honey.
