Apricots with Basil-Goat Cheese and Almonds

Apricots with Basil-Goat Cheese and Almonds

Fresh goat cheese, deeply flavorful Blenheim apricots (tangier and sweeter than Turkish apricots) and stubby, rich Marcona almonds are worth using here, because in a recipe this simple, the flavors are really noticeable.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 4 ounces fresh goat cheese 
  • About 2 tsp. milk 
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil 
  • 40 dried apricots
  • 40 almonds
  • 2 teaspoons honey


Step 1
Mix together cheese, 2 tsp. milk, and basil with a wooden spoon until spreadable. Thin with more milk if necessary.

Step 2
Spread a heaping 1/4 tsp. cheese on each apricot and top each with an almond. Drizzle with honey.

Step 3
Make ahead: 1 day ahead. Bring to room temperature, and drizzle with honey before serving.
