Ham, Manchego,& Fig Tartines

This is from Epicurious and it is spectacularly good. I sliced these and served them as appetizers. Everybody loved them. I think that you could sub apricot or orange preserves for the fig, and gruyere or Italian fontina for the Manchego.

1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
2 tablespoons fig preserves or jam
1 (24-inch) baguette, quartered crosswise, then each quarter halved horizontally and lightly toasted
6 ounces thinly sliced serrano ham or prosciutto
1/4 pound Manchego, thinly sliced with a vegetable peeler
Extra-virgin olive oil for drizzling

Stir together butter and fig preserves. Spread mixture on baguette, then make open-face sandwiches with ham and cheese. Drizzle with oil and season with pepper.
