This recipe is all about texture! Eat this one slowly and really notice the differences in texture between the warm, cripsy bread and the creamy goat cheese. Notice the toughness of the apricots and the crunch from the pistachio. Revel in the flavors of the tangy goat cheese mixed with the sweetness of the honey and apricot. This recipe is to die for!
Pro Tip: Warm up the goat cheese before mixing in the other ingredients to make the topping easier to spread!
