12 Santas

  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • 4 ounces Specially Selected Garlic & Herb Goat Cheese Log
  • 12 basil leaves (approximately the same size)
  • 4 ounces Fit & Active Neufchâtel Cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Friendly Farms 2% Milk
  • 6 grape tomatoes, halved
  • Cut a thin slice off each end of the cherry tomatoes, creating a flat base. Slice them in half lengthwise, without cutting to the other side.

  • Remove the seeds from the tomato and fill each with goat cheese, allowing for a small amount of goat cheese to be exposed. Stand each on a platter.

  • Roll each basil leaf into a cylinder, attach it to the tomato by placing it against the exposed goat cheese.

  • Whip the Neufchâtel cheese and 1 tablespoon of milk until smooth. Put the mixture into a storage bag. Cut the corner off the storage bag and pipe a round ball onto the tops of each tomato, forming the "head."

  • Place a grape tomato half "hat" on top of each Neufchâtel "head." Pipe a tiny dot of Neufchâtel cheese on the top of the "hat."
