This recipe for fig and prosciutto crostini is one I've taken straight out of my mom's playbook. (She's great at taking a few simple ingredients and turning them into a magically delicious appetizer.) Crunchy bread, sweet fig preserves, gooey cheese, and salty prosciutto. I like to sprinkle chopped parsley on top for a fresh pop of color.
