Sweet and Savory Holiday Edition: Goat Cheese & Honey Stuffed Pastries

Pin It PIN IT!

Our gorgeous Valentine’s appetizer plate!

Before I go into this recipe, I need to first admit how utterly ashamed I am of how much goat cheese I ate during the production of this dish. I’m also ashamed at how many of these popable hors’ devours I ate when they were done baking. It’s actually embarrassing. But honestly friends, they were just. that. good. The savory, creamy taste and texture of the goat cheese complimented the sweetness of the honey perfectly, especially when wrapped up and baked in a soft, flaky pastry. My mouth is watering just thinking of them again. Elliot, who has professed a hatred of goat cheese, gobbled these up like they were candy. He even made the “nom nom” sound with every bite. That is a win in my book! Oh, and these aren’t super healthy for you, so try to eat only one or two. [Aka, don’t mimic my barbaric behavior!] However, I warn you, it’ll be VERY hard to just eat one!

Goat Cheese and Honey Stuffed Pastries

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 small container of goat cheese
  • 4 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 package of pastry [can be frozen or puff]
  • Cooking Spray

How to Make Them:

  • Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and preheat oven to 375.
  • Roll dough out until it’s a thin sheet. Cut off long enough pieces so that they can be rolled once stuffed. You can make any shapes you’d like, I chose to go with a slightly deformed ravioli.
  • Place a spoonful of goat cheese and 1 tsp of honey into the pastry. Roll and place on the baking sheet.

  • Repeat until the ingredients are gone. Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown.

  • Drizzle additional honey over pastries and serve!
