Summer Fruit Bruschetta

24 baguette slices
¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
6 Tbs. dark brown sugar, divided use
¼ tsp. cinnamon
Sprinkle of nutmeg
½ cup chopped peaches
¼ cup chopped plums
1/8 cup blueberries
2 Tbs. fresh lime juice
2 Tbs. chopped toasted walnuts

Lay baguette slices in a single layer on a large baking sheet.  Brush lightly with a bit of oil; broil for 1-2 minutes until lightly toasted, then turn over. Combine the butter, 4 Tbs. brown sugar and spices and spread this mixture over the top of the baguette slices.  Broil for 1-2 minutes, until bubbly and bread is lightly browned on edges, taking care not to burn.  Combine fruits with remaining 2 Tbs. of brown sugar and lime juice; spoon equally over toasted baguette slices.  Top with walnuts and serve at once.
