Smashed Blackberry and Brie Crostini

This post contains collections of products that I recommend (it may contain affiliate links).

You may have noticed I’ve been on a major crostini kick lately, like this Grape Crostini and Passover Crostini. Good news: I have another scrumptious crostini recipe for you, and this time it’s brie and blackberry, which is a classic combo. The tanginess of the blackberries is perfect combined with the rich creaminess of soft brie. Be prepared to have your mind blown because brie is my all time favorite pairing for fruit.

This crostini doesn’t require roasting any fruits, but roasted fruit would be a delicious alternative for this crostini. Check out this roasted strawberry and burrata crostini, my roasted grapes, and my Roasted Strawberries and Brie Salad.

How to Make this Crostini

Whether you’re hankering for an elevated snack or are in need of a delicious appetizer for your next small gathering, this succulent crostini will satiate your cravings. This recipe easily serves a group! If you want to turn it into more of a shared plate, bake the brie and put it in the center of a dish surrounded by the blackberries, like I did here.

P.S. use these measurements as your guide, but i usually eyeball all of my ingredients and I encourage you to do the same!

The Roasted Blackberries

  • 18 oz blackberries, washed
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of kosher salt

The Crostini

  • 1 baguette, sliced into ½-inch rounds
  • 1 4-ounce package prosciutto, cut in half lengthwise (optional)
  • 1 Supreme Cheese Brie Oval, sliced 

The Toppings

  • 1 .75-ounce package of fresh mint, leaves removed

Pro tip: The oval shape of the Supreme Brie is perfect for making crostini because the slices will be nice and even!

Put It All Together

  • Set the broiler to low.
  • Drizzle the baguette rounds with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes on each side until golden brown. 
  • Remove from the oven. If using prosciutto, top half of the rounds with a slice of prosciutto, so it creates a layered ribbon effect, then add the brie and return to the oven for one minute more, or until the brie is slightly melted.
  • Meanwhile, add the blackberries, vanilla, honey, and salt to a bowl and mix until evenly coated. Smash roughly with a fork until a very chunky jam forms (be careful not to go overboard), then let marinate. 
  • Top each crostini with the blackberry mixture, then garnish with mint leaves.

Try Roasting Your Fruits

If you’re not a huge blackberry fan, give a different fruit a try! Since most fruits aren’t as soft as blackberries, roasting is the key to tender goodness. Roasting breaks down the fruits’ cells and releases moisture, making them sweeter, softer, and more spreadable–which is ideal for this crostini. A good rule of thumb is that if it tastes good baked in a pie, it’ll taste good roasted. You can try my grape roasting method on these fruits too:

  • Blueberries 
  • Peaches 
  • Cherries
  • Apples
  • Pears
  • cranberries

Note: the more tender a fruit is, the less time it takes to roast. For instance, an apple will take a heck of a lot longer than a berry!
