McCormick's Vanilla Shrimp Crostini

I ran across this delectable appetizer at McCormick's web site.
Honesty I have not made this yet but I can't stop salivating!

Earlier this week I made for my house hold the Trader Joe's Crab dip so we need to eat that up before I keep making appetizer's,  that becomes a problem in my house!
I better just start entertaining more!
Ok enough about that, lets get the the recipe!

Here is what you will need:

1 loaf French bread
2 ounces Gruyere or Manchego cheese
4 tablespoons butter, divided
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 teaspoons McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Basil Leaves
1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Red Pepper, Ground Cayenne
Roasted red peppers, chopped (optional)
Fresh chives, snipped (optional)

How to make them:

1. Slice bread on the diagonal into 24 (1/2-inch thick) slices. Place on baking sheet; broil until lightly toasted on both sides. Using a vegetable peeler, shave cheese into very thin slices. Set aside.
2. Heat 2 tablespoons of the butter in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add shrimp; cook and stir 2 minutes or just until shrimp turn pink. Add wine, vanilla, basil and red pepper; cook 2 to 4 minutes. Remove shrimp from pan. Boil sauce 1 minute; remove pan from heat and whisk in remaining butter, 1 tablespoon at a time. The butter must melt gradually to form a creamy sauce.
3. To assemble appetizers, brush toasted bread slices with warm sauce from skillet. Top with 1 to 2 thin slices of cheese, then 1 to 2 shrimp (depending on size); brush with additional sauce. Garnish with roasted red pepper and chives, if desired.

Doesn't this sound good!
