    Recipe for honey-whipped goat cheese crostini with apples, walnuts

    Bethany Graber for The Boston Globe

    Serves 8

    At Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, apples are dipped into honey to represent the hope for sweetness in the coming year. These crostini combine that traditional pairing as an appetizer. Spread goat cheese mixed with honey onto toasted baguette slices and top with chopped walnuts and apples. Later in the season, use the toasts to accompany a warming squash soup.

    ¾cup walnuts
    1baguette, sliced ½-inch thick
    cup honey
    4ounces plain goat cheese, at room temperature
    Salt, to taste
    1large Cortland apple, cored and thinly sliced
    Extra honey (for drizzling)

    1. Set the oven at 350 degrees.

    2. Set the bread in one layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Spread the nuts in a baking dish. Toast both for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Chop the walnuts.


    3. In a food processor combine honey, goat cheese, and a pinch salt. Pulse until the mixture is smooth. Spread the goat cheese mixture on the toasts. Sprinkle with walnuts, top with apples, and drizzle with honey.
