Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. (don't fight this, parchment is your friend!)
Slice up your baguette. We had a little left over which we noshed on while making these.
Take a basting brush and brush the olive oil on both sides of the bread. Place on the cookie sheet. (I was going to write lay on the cookie sheet but I pictured new cooks climbing on the counter and actually laying on theirs. Yikes.)
Chop or break up your ricotta.
Spread it over top of the bread. Thick.
Place cherries on top. (I halved mine, in all honesty the next time I do these I'll chop them into small pieces so they stay put better)
Toss pistachios over top.
Place in the oven for about 5 to 8 minutes. (I left mine in a little too long hoping the cheese would start to melt just a touch so mine are a tad on the dark side. You want them lighter.)
Remove and prepare to chow down like you have eaten in days.
Enjoy with a big old cherry and pistachios rule the world smile!
