RECIPE: Easter Canapé Or Dessert

Colorful and delicious. Photo courtesy Vermont Butter & Cheese Creamery.


It couldn’t be easier to make this bite-size apricot morsel, which can be enjoyed with cocktails or with after-dinner coffee. All you need is dried apricots and a log of fresh goat cheese, with optional chopped nuts and whole nuts for garnish.

You’ll need two dried apricots for each “sandwich.”

  • For easier slicing, chill the log in the freezer for 15 minutes. If you are using chopped nuts, roll the log in the nuts before placing in freezer.
  • As the log chills, place half of the apricots on a work surface, “inside” face up.
  • Slice log into half-inch portions. Place one slice on each apricot. Top with a second apricot. The goat cheese slice may be wider than the apricot. Trim the sides with a sharp knife.
  • Adhere a walnut, almond or pistachio to the top of each canapé with a dab of honey.
  • Serve on an elegant plate or tray.
