Betty demonstrates how to make Sun Dried Tomato and Cheese Crostini. This recipe was adapted from a recipe sent to me by a viewer, Krissy. It consists of French bread cut into slices and topped with a mixture of cream cheese and chives, along with sun dried tomatoes, parmesan cheese and Italian herbs. It is then baked until toasted and bubbly. Thanks, Krissy, for the great recipe!
