This one-bite appy comes together quickly with no mess. Choose dried apricots that are soft, buy the oldest cheddar you can afford and be sure to toast the hazelnuts; your guests will be talking about these stuffed apricots until the New Year.
  • Dried apricots
  • Aged cheddar
  • Hazelnuts
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and toast hazelnuts for about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.
  2. Slice cheddar into 1/2 inch pieces and reserve.
  3. Using a sharp paring knife, slit the apricot half open to reveal where the pit once was. Place a piece of cheddar and a toasted hazelnut inside the dried apricot and place on a platter. Repeat as necessary. Serve at room temperature.
