This is one of those recipes that was a very happy accident. I had a variation in my mind (Candied Pineapple and Pistachio Goat Cheese Dip if you must know) for a long time that I still might make in the future, but laziness prevented me from going to the store for the ingredients. It was just one of those weeks.

I mean, some days the grocery store is my happy place and some weeks I avoid it like the plague. This was one of the plague weeks. But when I crave goat cheese, I have to have goat cheese! Looking through my pantry, I saw canned cherries and thought…what about HOT CHERRY PIE GOAT CHEESE DIP?! It was just that simple, and what a happy accident it was.
