1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped

Honey Tips

Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 &deg.
Spread about 1 teaspoon of goat cheese on each slice of baguette. Arrange slices in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes until cheese softens. Remove from oven, sprinkle slices with pecans and then rosemary. Drizzle with a little honey.
