Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 ounces fresh goat cheese
  • 2 teaspoons milk, more if needed
  • 40 dried apricots, use turkish if possible (6 oz)
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme leave (1-1/2 teaspoons dried thyme)
  • 40 candied walnuts, halves

Directions

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, place the cheese and milk.
  2. Using the paddle attachment, whip the cheese for at least 5 minutes, or until it is very smooth and creamy.
  3. If the cheese is still crumbly, add more milk 1/2 teaspoon at a time.
  4. To assemble, spread about 1/8 teaspoon of cheese on apricot. (If using California apricots, put the goat cheese on the shiny side.).
  5. Drizzle a little honey over the cheese and top with a sprinkling of thyme.
  6. Place a walnut half on top, arrange apricots on a platter and serve.
