This elegant Cranberry Pistachio Mint Goat Cheese Appetizer is perfect for Christmas. It takes just five ingredients and is so easy to assemble.
Last night, my husband and I attended a live concert at Grace Farms by the Broadway Inspirational Voices. It was an incredibly inspirational performance, putting the Christ back into Christmas for me. Around this time of year, I start stressing out about decorating the house and buying gifts (can you relate?!?!). So, taking the focus off of this busy-ness and placing it on what I can do with the gifts God has given me to help others helps keep things in perspective.
Broadway Inspirational Voices is a non-profit organization comprised of a diverse choir of Broadway artists united to change lives through the power of music and service. They are in the midst of a kickstarter campaign to raise enough money to create their second album Great Joy II: Around the World (their first album, Great Joy: A Gospel Christmas received a Grammy Award nomination). All the proceeds from their record sales go towards their outreach programs. I am sharing this with you because I was so inspired by the message shared by this group of talented folks.
I made this Cranberry Pistachio Mint Goat Cheese Appetizer recently for our Women’s Ministry Christmas party, along with a Cranberry Pecan Brie Appetizer (recipe to come). It’s so easy to assemble and beautiful, and perfect for a party. Honestly, I can’t even call this a recipe. All you do is roll a log of goat cheese (I used Trader Joe’s Honey Goat Cheese) in a mixture of dried cranberries, toasted pistachios and chopped mint. Just a drizzle of honey on top and you’re good to go.
