Start to finish: 1 hour, 25 minutes
Impresses: 8

2 pints blackberries, rinsed
1 lemon, juiced
½ teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon thyme leaves
2 tablespoons sugar
1 French baguette, sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
8-ounce tub whipped cream cheese
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled

Add blackberries, lemon juice and zest, thyme and sugar to a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. 

Using a wooden spoon, stir and muddle the berries while they reduce. Bring to a simmer until thickened, about 7 minutes. 

Let cool completely before transferring to a jar and storing in the fridge until ready to use.

Heat oven broiler and place baguette slices onto a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and toast about 3 minutes, until golden.

Combine cream cheese and feta cheese in a medium-sized bowl.

Schmear a healthy amount of cheese mixture onto toasted baguette slices and top with blackberry compote.

Serve immediately.
