  • 1 4 oz. goat cheese log chilled
  • 2 honey
  • 2/3 c. pecans toasted and finely chopped
  • assorted crackers and crudités to serve


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spread pecans on rimmed baking sheet and place in oven for 10 minutes. Remove halfway through and flip the pecans with a spatula to toast evenly. Remove from oven and cool completely before chopping.
  • Remove goat cheese log from package and drizzle with honey. Gently spread honey with your fingers until the entire surface is evenly covered.
  • Pour chopped pecans onto a small clean plate. Gently roll the honey-coated goat cheese log in the nuts until entire surface is coated. Apply gentle pressure with your fingers to fill in any open spaces.
  • Transfer to serving plate and loosely cover with plastic wrap. Store in refrigerator until 5-10 minutes before serving. Serve with crackers and crudités – or slice into rounds to top a mixed green salad.
