2
teaspoons butter
2

1/4
cup crumbled Gorgonzola, Roquefort, or other blue cheese (1 ounce)
1
ounce cream cheese
16
dried apricots
 
Snipped fresh rosemary (optional)

Directions

  1. In a small skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add walnuts and sugar; cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until walnuts are lightly toasted. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary; cook and stir for 30 seconds more. Transfer nuts to a foil-lined baking sheet; cool.
