Holiday treat!

Goat Cheese Kisses

Each of these bite-size savory treats has a bit of dried fruit tucked inside for a slightly sweet surprise.

Makes: 2 dozen pieces

Preparation time: 35 minutes


3 tablespoons hazelnuts or pistachios (3/4 ounce), finely chopped

6 ounces creamy goat cheese

6 dried apricots or dried figs, each cut into quarters


1. Line a plate or small tray with wax paper. Place nuts in a shallow dish. Scoop a heaping 1/2 teaspoon goat cheese and press a piece of dried apricot (or fig) into the center.

2. Wrap the cheese around the dried fruit to form a ball. Roll the ball in the chopped nuts to create a crust; set on the plate or tray. Repeat with remaining goat cheese, dried fruit and nuts.

Let's eat!
