My friend Patti invited me for lunch one day many years ago and served these warm treats over a beautiful salad with fresh pear slices!!! It was divine!

log of fresh goat cheese (unseasoned)
finely chopped pecans
1 tsp
cinnamon, ground
1 pinch
vinegarette dressing of your choice or apricot/peach preserves and bread slices


1Roll goat cheese into 1-inch balls and set aside
2Toast your pecans in a frying pan on med-low heat with 1 tsp of butter and the cinnamon and nutmeg for a few minutes stirring frequently to avoid scorching your pecans
3Let pecan mixture cool
4Roll your goat cheese balls in the pecans to cover/coat completely
5Put each covered goat cheese ball in a mini muffin tray and bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
6Serve the warmed goat cheese balls over a fresh bed of greens with thinly sliced pears or peaches if desired. A vinegrette dressing of your choice works well with this salad!
This also makes a wonderful appetizer served with apricot or peach preserves and bread at your wine tasting party!
