This winter has been one of the snowiest I can remember.  As if we didn’t already have enough snow, a few days ago, we were blessed with another 12 inches in less than 12 hours.  By now, I am yearning for the abundance of fruits, vegetables and sunshine of summer.  While we still have a several months to go, I am turning toward other ways to satisfy those summer cravings.  Easy Raspberry Cheesecake Crostini unites traditional ingredients, such as light cream cheese and Smucker’s® Natural Fruit Spread, to create the perfect pairing to spread a little sunshine on top of mini toasts.  These are great for a light lunch or an after school snack, yet they are pretty enough to make for company.

Smucker’s® Natural Fruit Spread comes in four delicious flavors – Strawberry, Orange Marmalade, Concord Grape and Red Raspberry, so you can mix things up to create unique combinations.  These spreads are great because they are made with ingredients from natural sources, have no preservatives and are naturally delicious.
