Ingredients

  • 8.8 ounces Original Snøfrisk® Goat Cheese 2 containers
  • 1/4 cup unsalted pistachios, shelled

Olive Oil Thyme Crackers

  • 9 ounces all purpose flour 2 cups
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp white sugar
  • 1 Tbs fresh thyme 6-8 sprigs
  • 4 ounces olive oil 1/2 cup
  • 2 ounces water 1/4 cup

Roasted Grapes

  • 1 pound thomcord, or other sweet red/purple grape
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 8-10 sprigs fresh thyme

Instructions

Crackers

  • Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine flour, sugar, salt, and fresh thyme leaves for the crackers in a bowl and stir to combine. Pour in olive oil and water and fold gently to bring dough together.
  • When dough has come together turn out on a lightly floured clean surface. Press palms gently into dough to flatten into disc.
  • Lightly flour a rolling pin and roll dough out to 1/4" thick. Cut into desired shape. For truly bite sized appetizers 1 inch wide by about 1 1/2" long is ideal.
  • Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the edges have begun to turn very lightly brown on the bottom. This may take several batches to bake all the dough. Move finished crackers to a cooling rack.

Roasted Grapes

  • When crackers are done, place grapes on the baking sheet and drizzle with oil and toss with salt and thyme sprigs. Place in oven and roast for 5-7 minutes or until skins begin to wrinkle and peel away.

Assemble

  • Open Snøfrisk® goat cheese and spread between 1/2 to 1 teaspoon on each cracker.
  • Pulse pistachios in a food processor, or chop, until finely crushed. Sprinkle over goat cheese.
  • Slice roasted grapes in half* and arrange slices on top of the pistachios, 2 to 3 per cracker depending on the size of the grapes.
  • Serve immediately, or place in fridge for up to 8 hours. If prepping further ahead than that, wait to assemble until ready to serve. Yields between 70 - 80 crackers.

Notes

*Grapes can also be placed on the crackers whole for quicker assembly. 
*Appetizers can be served cold or at room temperature and safely stay out for 4 hours.
