Recipe Notes

  • For goat cheese-stuffed apricots, mix creamy goat cheese and fresh thyme leaves. Stuff your apricots and drizzled them with honey. 
  • Cream cheese is neutral and a fabulous filling here as well. Drizzle with either balsamic or honey or both!
  • A filling of vanilla cream cheese and honey makes for a sweet almost dessert-like finger food.
  • Don't stop at apricots, play around with all the season's fabulous fruits, like grilled peaches or plums.
