    Goat Cheese Kisses

    Each of these bite-size savory treats has a bit of dried fruit tucked inside for a slightly sweet surprise. They make wonderful holiday gifts as well as elegant little hors d'oeuvres.

    Ingredients

    • 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

    Instructions

    Step 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. 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.
