These Tipsy Cheese & Cherry Crostinis are a perfect summer appetizer! Made with fresh seasonal cherries and a flavourful Swiss like cheese.


  • 1 cup fresh cherries (cut in half and pits removed)
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 block of Gunn’s Hill Tipsy Cheese
  • 1 baguette
  • salt & fresh ground pepper
  • parsley for garnish


  1. Mix together the water and cornstarch.
  2. In a saucepan over low to medium heat, add the halved cherries, water/cornstarch mix, sugar and balsamic vinegar. Cook until the cherries are soft and the juices turn syrupy.
  3. Once the cherries are cooked, set them aside to cool.
  4. Slice the baguette into 1/2 inch slices. If you wish, you can toast the slices or leave them fresh, it’s entirely up to you!
  5. Lay the baguette slices out on a serving platter, add slices of the Tipsy Cheese, then add dollops of the cherry mixture to each crostini.
  6. Drizzle with extra cherry syrup, add salt & fresh ground pepper to taste, and garnish with fresh parsley.
  7. Enjoy!
