8 oz. fresh goat cheese or cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup chopped pecans, lightly toasted
1/3 cup chopped dried black mission figs (may substitute other dried fruit varieties, such as apricots, prunes, cranberries, raisins, etc., though I strongly advocate figs)
2 tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. freshly grated orange zest
small pinch of salt


  1. 1
    Toast pecans for 3 minutes in a 375°F oven or until crisp and fragrant. Cool completely.
  2. 2
    Place all ingredients in a bowl and fold together just until blended. Spread on warm toasted bread or bagel, or refrigerate until serving.
  3. 3
    Spread can be made 3-5 days in advance, but should be brought to room temperature before serving.
