Apricot & Goat Cheese Appetizers

Looking for a unique appetizer recipe?
This may be just the ticket, especially if you like goat cheese, apricots, and nuts!

The shimmer comes from honey which makes anything special!

The chopped basil just adds a bit of color and of course a nice fresh minty taste.

And did I mention this recipe is quick and easy to prepare? Takes only a few minutes of your time!

Apricot & Goat Cheese Appetizer:

4 oz. goat cheese at room temperature
2 tsp. whole milk or cream
40 dried apricots
40 nuts (pecans & almonds work well)
Honey, for drizzling
Chopped basil to taste (4 large leaves or so)

Mix together goat cheese and cream (or milk)...spread mixture on dried apricots.

Toast the nuts for a few minutes and place warm nut on top of the goat cheese.

Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with chopped, fresh basil.

These little bites look pretty on a doily covered plate...enjoy!
