A simple, sweet and savory appetizer made with goat cheese, fresh cherries, thyme, and puff pastry
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut pastry into one-inch squares. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and press the center of each square with your thumb to make an indentation. Place about ½ teaspoon of goat cheese in each indentation.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until pastry is golden brown and puffed up.
While the pastry and goat cheese bake, add remaining ingredients to a small saucepan over medium heat. Cherries will begin to release juices. Stir until sugar is dissolved in the liquid and cook until bubbling (about 3 minutes). Reduce heat to medium low and let mixture simmer and thicken (about 10 minutes), stirring occasionally to break down cherries.
Spoon about ½ teaspoon of cherry mixture over each bite. Serve warm.
