Whipped goat cheese with honey in a speckled bowl topped with pomegranates

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. goat cheese, room temperature
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
  • ¼ cup honey + more for drizzling 
  • ¼ cup pomegranate seeds
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans, toasted (omit for nut-free)
  • 12 tsp. fresh rosemary and/or fresh thyme

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl combine the goat cheese, cream cheese and honey. With a hand mixer, whip the ingredients together starting at low speed and increasing the speed to high. Mix until smooth and fluffy. You may also do this in a standup mixer.
  2. Transfer the whipped goat cheese to a serving bowl or platter. Top with pomegranate seeds and pecans. Garnish with fresh herbs and drizzle with a little honey.
  3. Serve with your favorite crackers or on top of slices of a french baguette. 

Notes

Notes: To toast the pecans, place the chopped pecans in a small pan over medium-low heat. Toss the nuts every minute or so. After about 5-7 minutes. The pecans are toasted when they start giving off a nice nutty aroma. Watch closely as they can burn quickly.
