Goat Cheese, Apricot and Pistachio Crostini with Honey
These bite-size hors d'oevures are perfectly balanced with sweet, salt and tangy flavors. Pistachios, goat cheese and apricots are a match made in heaven!
Servings: 8 people
- 1 baguette, thinly sliced on the bias
- 6 ounces chevre (creamy goat cheese)
- 1/2 cup chopped pistachio nutmeats, toasted
- 1 cup dried apricots, finely chopped
- 4 ounces honey (approximately)
Turn the broiler on high. Arrange the baguette slices on a sheet pan and place under the broiler for about 5 minutes, or until they become golden-brown. Keep a close eye on them, as they can get too dark in a matter of seconds.
Remove crostini from the oven and let cool slightly. Once cool enough to touch, spread about a tablespoon or so of the goat cheese on each piece.
Combine the pistachios and dried apricots in a small bowl, then sprinkle on top of each crostini.
Drizzle each piece with honey and serve immediately.
