Turn to medium-low heat, add 1 tbsp honey, minced fresh thyme leaves, lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Stir to combine and set aside to cool slightly.

5.

Assemble the crostini: Divide the goat cheese mixture evenly between the 16 crostini, spreading a dollop on each. Next divide honey apple slices between the crostini, on top of the goat cheese layer, followed by fresh thyme leaves for garnish, chopped walnuts and a drizzle of honey if desired.
