Super Easy Crispy Crostini

Easy Brie and Fig Crostini

The boys gleefully proclaimed this to be their last week of school before the highly anticipated 2-week winter break.

My first thought: Please don’t let it be subzero temps the entire 2 weeks or we will all go batty in here.

My second (nicer) thought: We get to sleep in.

I’m all about sleeping in. Especially during the hectic holiday season when sleep is often the first thing to go.

Brie and Fig Jam are made for each other

Always a party favorite

When the To-Do List is overloaded during the holidays, it’s time for easy finger foods like Brie and Fig Crostini for all the gatherings.

Brie and Fig Crostini appetizers are simple and delicious. They’re sweet, salty, creamy, and crispy all in once bite.

Not to be forgotten is a super easy and delicious apple sangria. Or maybe some bubbly champagne punch.

Point is, I’d much rather be mingling with family and friends than hovering over the stove when the doorbell rings.

  • 1 full size baguette, sliced into 1/4 inch slices
  • 3 TB butter, melted
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 15 ounces brie, good quality, about one wheel sliced into 1/4 slices
  • 1 jar fig preserves, about 18 oz


  • Preheat oven to 375F, with rack on upper middle position. Line a large baking sheet with foil. Place baguette slices in a single layer on baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, combine melted butter with olive oil. Use a pastry brush to brush butter mixture evenly on both sides each baguette slice. Bake 8-10 minutes or until slices become crispy. If needed, flip crostini over to allow crisping on the bottom side for a few minutes.
  • Place a slice of brie over each crostini. Top each crostini with a generous dollop of fig preserves. Serve.


If desired, you can warm the brie on crostini slices a bit in the oven before adding the fig jam.
Crostini are best used within a day, to maintain its crispness.

    Hi. Would this work with Camembert? That is what I have in my fridge. Thank you

      • Amy Dong

      Yes, Maria, that would be good, too! 🙂

    • Kathy

    Recipe truly does look delicious but out of all of the comments, NO ONE has actually made these appetizers. Just a reminder for commenters: I would be much more helpful to those of us who actually want to make the recipe to let us know how the recipe worked for you rather than commenting on the blogger’s photography. Thanks for allowing me to share my thoughts.
