  • ½ cup of toasted pecans
  • 16 ounces of cream cheese at room temperature


  1. Slice bread diagonally.
  2. Stir crushed garlic into olive oil.
  3. Brush each slice with olive oiVgarlic mixture and toast in the oven until golden brown.
  4. Put the bag of cranberries, the orange (skin and all), sugar, and toasted pecans in a food processor and pulse until ground.
  5. Add the cranberry mixture to the cream cheese and incorporate well.
  6. Spread each slice of toast with a thick spread of cranberry/cream cheese mixture and top with a slice of ham. Ifs better to allow your guests to "build their own" crostini rather than making them ahead of time as the cranberry spread can cause the toast to become soggy after awhile.
