Servings: 12 People
- 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
- 1 pound thomcord, or other sweet red/purple grape
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 8-10 sprigs fresh thyme
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.
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.
*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.
