Lemon Honey Goat Cheese Spread

Lemon Honey Goat Cheese Spread

Why is goat cheese so fantastic? I mean, honestly, I want to smear it on everything. Omelets, sandwiches, bread, pasta, crackers, a spoon, my finger, etc…

If you love cheese as much as I do, boy, do I have a treat for you today! I was recently contacted by Daelia’s Biscuits for Cheese, a new company that creates delicious crackers for cheese pairings!

Lemon Honey Goat Cheese Spread

They asked me to come up with a cheese recipe to go with their crackers. You know I had to accept this challenge! Imagine my excitement when I received this box of goodies!

Lemon Honey Goat Cheese Spread

I received three different kinds: almond and raisin, hazelnut and fig, and pumpkin and rye. Daelia’s provides a list of cheeses that pair with each biscuit. I knew I wanted to do something with goat cheese! So, I whipped up a quick spread with lemon and honey mixed in! It was suggested that goat cheese pairs well with the almond raisin biscuits. Boy, were they right about that! First, the biscuit is slightly sweet, very similar to a biscotti cookie! Then you get a hint of black pepper which gives it a nice little kick! And paired with the sweet goat cheese spread, it was perfection!

I also paired the goat cheese spread with the hazelnut and fig biscuits, which for me, was my fave hands down of the three flavors! I also enjoyed the pumpkin and rye biscuits and I don’t even like rye! Though, this one did not pair so well with the goat cheese spread I made.

Lemon Honey Goat Cheese Spread

I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked these crackers! And what I like even more about them is that they are all-natural! I would definitely serve these for a wine and cheese party!

    Steph, this sounds delicious! I want to lick my computer screen but am thus far resisting because you never know when someone will pop up with a camera in my household.

    As for favorite cheese, I’m torn between goat cheese (not just saying that because it’s the topic of the post lol) and Muenster.

    Cheese is my most favorite thing ever. I could put it on everything and be very happy. This spread sounds so good!!! Goat cheese is up there in my favorites, but a nice brie or camembert isn’t far behind and you can never go wrong with a sharp cheddar!!

    Before I read to your pairing I thought that spread sounded like it was meant for the hazelnut and fig crackers! :)

    I love all cheeses… but aged gouda or goat cheese with truffles are my top 2.

    I am exactly the same way with goat cheese–my husband has to tell me not to put it in things because he’s slightly less in love with it. I’ve made a spread with lemon, but haven’t tried adding honey–I am so going to do this!

    My all time favorite is cured goat cheese. I’m from Spain and over there there’s lots of cured, deep-flavored goat cheeses. They go perfect with spanish ham! Love the spread idea. Better than buying spreads from the store.
