  • 1 Refrigerated Prepared Pie Crust Dough
  • 1 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Ground Pepper
  • 2-3 TBS Orange Marmalade
  • 2 TBS Gorgonzola Crumbles
  • 4-5 Very Thin Slices of Speck Alto Adige PGI (Torn or cut into small pieces)
  • ½ tsp Dried Thyme


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 Degrees F. Line a large sheet pan with foil, parchment, or a silicone mat.
  2. Unroll the refrigerated pie dough onto a cutting board. (If it cracks, just push it back together with your hands, no biggie.) Using a small 1 ½ inch cookie cutter, cut out as many crackers as possible. I rolled out the excess dough so that I was able to cut out a total of 36 crackers.
  3. Place the crackers onto the baking sheet, and brush them with olive oil. Sprinkle the crackers with a little bit of salt and pepper, and bake for 5-6 minutes. Check the crackers after 5 minutes because they can burn quickly. Look for golden edges and a crisp, dry top.

  4. Allow the crackers to cool, and place them on a serving plate. Top each cracker with a small dollop of orange marmalade, a few crumbles of gorgonzola, and a small piece of Speck Alto Adige. Then, sprinkle the canapés with the dried thyme, and serve.

  5. Enjoy and have a Happy New Year!
