  • Arrange five 8-by-8-inch sheets plastic wrap on work surface. Be sure they are smooth and free of wrinkles.

  • In a small bowl, stir together pine nuts, goat cheese, and red bell pepper; season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

  • Place 4 overlapping slices of avocado on each piece of plastic wrap. Combine lime juice and 1 teaspoon olive oil in a small bowl; brush mixture on avocado. Working with one avocado portion, top with 1 tablespoon goat cheese mixture; bring together corners of plastic wrap, and twist tightly, shaping the avocado into a ball. Continue to twist until plastic wrap breaks, releasing canape. Repeat with remaining avocado.

I tried this yesterday afternoon. I made 4 of them, each one turning out a little better than the one before. The trick is to get them to be small enough to toss in your mouth in one bite. Also, keep them chilled to help them hold together. The best looking one was with smaller slices of avocado and a smaller bit of cheese. I decided NOT to serve them though because the goat cheese flavor overpowers the avocado, and they just don't look that great.

I totally agree with the previous comment. The technique described in step 4 is impossible to visualize..... we need either a photo or a much clearer description!
