Stone Fruits with Honey-Drizzled Soft Cheeses and Toasted Almonds

A light cheese-and-fruit course is a lovely way to end a meal. Look for fresh ricotta in Italian and specialty markets. This recipe calls for almond oil. If you can't find it in your market, try, 877-446-8763.

Stone Fruits with Honey-Drizzled Soft Cheeses and Toasted Almonds

Source: Martha Stewart Living, July 2007


  • 1/2 cup blanched whole almonds
  • 2 tablespoons almond oil or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounces fresh goat cheese, room temperature
  • 4 ounces fresh ricotta cheese
  • Assorted stone fruits, such as 2 sliced nectarines, 2 halved or whole small red or yellow plums, 16 white or red cherries
  • 3 tablespoons wildflower or orange-blossom honey


  1. Heat almonds and oil in a skillet over medium heat, tossing occasionally, until almonds are lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer almonds to a plate to cool; discard oil.

  2. Stir together cheeses, then mound on a platter, making a small well in the center with the back of a spoon. Surround with fruits and toasted almonds. Drizzle honey into center of cheese.

    Been making this since it first ran in print!

    Best enjoyed on the patio during summer's peak of stone fruit with a glass of Sauterne.
