Recipe:Pepper Jelly-Goat Cheese Cakes

By on November 30, 2012 in Recipes with 1 Comment

Boy was I excited when I leafed through my December Southern Living issue and discovered a whole section of Pepper Jelly recipes. Love the stuff. These Pepper Jelly-Goat Cheese Cakes were first on my list to try. They were a big hit with their savory nutty bottoms, creamy  tangy middles, and sweet and peppery tops. (Next to try recipe is the Pepper Jelly Margaritas!)

Tis the season for appetizers and finger foods and Pepper Jelly-Goat Cheese Cakes would make a great addition to your Holiday Open House. If you really want to get festive, top half of the cakes with Green Pepper Jelly.

These savory bite-sized treats can easily be prepared hours in advance and pulled out of the refrigerator just before serving.
