Cheese Bread Stars

Heat your oven to 375 degrees. Cut Italian bread into 12 slices, about half an inch thick each. Cut each slice with a 3-inch cookie cutter in the shape of a star (you can use other cutter designs, too.

Place the bread stars on a cookie sheet, ungreased, and spread 1 teaspoon of pesto on each slice.

Next, use a smaller (say, 2 inch?) star-shaped cookie cutter to cut sliced American or cheddar cheese. Place these smaller cheese stars on the larger bread stars, with the pesto between. Bake for about 8 minutes or until the cheese melts.
