I scaled this recipe way back to serve as an appetizer for our Easter dinner. These little nuggets were very much enjoyed. I believe my apricots were whole (the package did not specify). I do think the balance of flavors would be better using apricot halves. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2014.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb soft mild goat cheese, chilled


  1. Toss apricots with juice and let stand, tossing occasionally, 20 minutes until softened.
