  • 1 baguette
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 8 ounces room-temperature goat cheese
  • Pinch Kosher salt
  • 1 cup halved walnuts or 3/4 cups chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup honey
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F, and have ready a large sheet pan.

  2. Slice the baguette at a major bias into 1/4" slices. Transfer to the sheet pan, and drizzle with half of the olive oil. Turn the slices over, and drizzle with remaining olive oil. 

  3. Transfer to the oven and bake for 4 minutes. Remove from the oven, and carefully turn the slices over. Return to the oven to bake for another 2-3 minutes, or until golden in color. Remove the oven and set aside to cool.

  4. Add the cream and the goat cheese to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Mix until well combined. If you do not have a stand mixer, use a handheld mixer.

  5. Spread a layer of the goat cheese mixture onto each baguette slice. Place 2-3 walnut halves on each baguette (or sprinkle evenly with chopped walnuts) and drizzle with honey. Serve and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

The baguettes can be toasted a day in advance and store in an airtight container or a plastic, zip-top bag.

The goat cheese can be mixed 2-3 days in advance and refrigerated in an airtight container until ready to use.
