I made these for book club. Before I took them, I had The Husband taste test. He liked the variety of flavors, with the blue cheese strong at the end. He loves blue cheese, so these totally worked for him.

The book club ladies also loved them. One commented that she liked the “savory and sweet” tastes. I only had a couple left over, so I think that also speaks volumes.

I will certainly make these again! Thanks.

These were really good! The store was out of blue cheese, so I subbed gorgonzola. I also decided against drizzling the extra honey and they were still really good!

Your “heaps” look bigger than the ones I made, so I needed about 30 apricots for this amount of filling.

These are beautiful, very simple, and we love all the ingredients. For us, though, it just didn’t work together. The sweetness of the honey didn’t pair well with the sweet of the apricot. The tang of the fruit also seemed to fight the tang of the cheese. We were so looking forward to trying them, sorry it just wasn’t for us.

I used almonds and cashews instead of pistachios because it was what we had and made this the lazy way by layering the blue cheese and nuts on an apricot and drizzling it with honey. The flavors worked well together, I really enjoyed it and would make it again!

The book club ladies also loved them. One commented that she liked the “savory and sweet” tastes. I only had a couple left over (from a double batch), so I think that also speaks volumes.

P.S. I put this same comment in the comments section by accident. Pardon me!
