  • Active Time 35m
  • Total Time 35m

About 2 dozen pieces (serving size: 1 piece)

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.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 4 days.


  • 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


Line a plate or small tray with wax paper. Place the 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 the remaining goat cheese, dried fruit and nuts.
