Warm Nutty Yogurt Cheese

If you're ever looking for an impressive, delicious, crowd pleasing appetizer for a dinner party then I highly recommend considering my yogurt cheese recipe.  Serve it with herbed wafer crackers and you can tell your guests that you "made your own cheese"... that's right, you technically make your own cheese.

Warm, Nutty Yogurt Cheese
2 cups plain, 2% Greek yogurt
6 tablespoons honey, divided
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pistachios

-Line a colander with cheesecloth and place over a mixing bowl
-Whip 2 tablespoons of honey and spices into the yogurt
-Place yogurt in the cheesecloth lined colander and leave to strain overnight
-The next day, form the cheese into a ball (leave the bottom flat so it sits on the serving dish)
-In a small saucepan, heat the remaining honey
-Sprinkle with chopped pistachios and drizzle warm honey over the cheese ball
