1 loaf, good quality, thin sliced white bread.
Unsalted butter, room temperature
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Trim the crusts off and slice the bread in halves on the diagonal, twice, to form four (4) triangles;
set the bread on a baking sheet, brush one side with the butter.
Place the bread in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Toast the bread until it is golden brown and crisp on top, about 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and cook
the other side until golden, about 1 minute. Remove from oven and cool the "points" on a baking rack.
Toast Points can be made up to a day ahead; store them in an airtight container.
