Blue Cheese-Apricot Bites
- 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.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine Gorgonzola cheese and cream cheese. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
- Spoon about 3/4 teaspoon of the cheese mixture on top of each dried apricot. Sprinkle with nuts. If desired, garnish with additional fresh rosemary.

I loved this recipe but instead of dried apricots I used halved, grilled apricots and peaches, although I quartered the peaches for serving.

2 stars, easy to make. At my last party they were the least popular of 3 appetizers, even losing out to plain old broiled bacon-wrapped dates.

These are the easiest hors d'oeuvres to make and everyone swoons over them. I've made the praline with whatever nuts I have on hand and it always works, and have used Maytag blue as well as the supermarket blue cheeses and they both work, too. I make these when I haven't time to run to the store but they look as though I worked for hours on them, they are so pretty to look at and delicious to eat.
