I absolutely love goat cheese so when I came across this recipe in a Family Circle magazine, I knew I had to try it. The green color from the pistachios make it a festive Christmas hors d'oeuvres.
Pistachio and Goat Cheese Ball
Makes 8-1/4cup servings
4oz plain goat cheese, room temperature
8oz cream cheese, room temperature (I use reduced fat)
2 tbsp honey
2 tsp chopped fresh thyme
1/2 cup pistachios, chopped
1. Mix cheeses, honey and thyme on medium speed until well combined.
2. Transfer mixture to a clean work surface. Form into a ball and roll in the pistachios. Refrigerate at least 1 hour; reshape if needed. Serve with crackers or a sliced and toasted baguette.
