Now that spring weather is upon us, we love entertaining guests outside in the beautiful weather. That said, sometimes the “easiest” recipes do not always turn out so easy. One recipe we love to create for friends and family that is not only easy to make, but also light and delicious is the Crostini With Cream Cheese Topping. This recipe is sure to bring a smile to everyone’s faces at your next party.

At Best Friends For Frosting, we are always excited to try out new recipes, especially appetizers! Sometimes we get so focused on the main course, it’s easy to forget to serve appetizers that are “outside the box” that guests are truly going to enjoy. This recipe was fun to make and was such a success in our office!
