Ingredients

1 cup Simple Truth Organic Whole Raw Almonds
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
½ cup Simple Truth Organic Honey
2 cups Simple Truth Organic Dark Sweet Cherries, thawed
1 tablespoon Simple Truth Organic Rosemary 
10 ounces goat cheese
Water crackers

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  1. Spread the almonds on a baking sheet and bake for 6 minutes. Remove pan from the oven and pour the almonds into a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the balsamic vinegar and honey. Halve any large cherries and add the cherries and rosemary to the bowl and stir until they are covered by the liquid. Set aside for 5 minutes.
  3. On a cutting board, chop up the almonds. Set aside ½ tablespoon chopped almonds and roll the goat cheese in the remaining almonds. Use your hands to mix the almonds into the goat cheese and form the goat cheese into a disc. Place the goat cheese in the center of a pie plate.
  4. Pour the cherry mixture around the cheese. Sprinkle the set aside almonds on top of the goat cheese.
  5. Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes. Serve with crackers.
  6. NOTE: this recipe works great with fresh cranberries too!
