  • Place baguette slices on a baking sheet and brush the tops with olive oil. Sprinkle with 1 pinch kosher salt.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crisp, about 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.

  • Meanwhile, stir together ricotta, lemon zest, maple syrup, and 1 teaspoon kosher salt in a small bowl. Place in the refrigerator.

  • Preheat a panini grill to 420 degrees F (215 degrees C).

  • Rinse peaches in cold water, remove pits, and slice into 1/2-inch wedges.

  • Place 1/2 of the prosciutto slices on one side of the preheated grill and 1/2 of the peach wedges on the other side. Close the grill and cook for 30 seconds. Carefully transfer the peach wedges to a baking sheet (peaches are delicate when sliced so make sure they don't turn too soft). Transfer proscuitto to a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining peaches and prosciutto.

  • Chop prosciutto coarsely. Spread 1/2 teaspoon of the ricotta mixture onto each baguette slice and sprinkle generously with prosciutto. Top each baguette with 2 to 3 peach slices. Sprinkle with basil and drizzle with maple syrup.
