Looking for a delicious appetizer to serve at your holiday parties and gatherings? These prosciutto cups with goat cheese appetizers are always a hit with my guests.

Tip: If possible, have your prosciutto sliced by your grocery store’s meat department instead of in the ready-sliced packages.
Goat Cheese Prosciutto Cups Appetizer Recipe
Servings: 24 appetizers
Total Prep Time: 30 minutes
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cut prosciutto slices in half lengthwise to create 24 long, thin strips.
Press the center of the prosciutto strip into the bottom of the cup. Carefully fold and wrap one end of the prosciutto around one interior side of the cup until it overlaps the prosciutto on the opposite side. Repeat with the opposite side of the prosciutto so that the exposed muffin cup is covered to form a “cup.”
Repeat this process with the remaining 23 muffin cups.
Place the muffin tin in a preheated oven and bake for 9-10 minutes. Keep an eye on them while they bake so they don’t overcook. The edges of the prosciutto will start to brown when ready.
Remove pan from oven and cool for a couple of minutes before transferring each prosciutto cup to paper towels to remove excess grease. Flip each prosciutto cup after several minutes. Once all excess oil has been removed, transfer prosciutto cups to a large plate.
Whipped Goat Cheese Filling
Once prosciutto cups are cool to the touch, transfer the cheese mixture to a plastic sandwich bag. Cut a small tip off one corner and pipe cheese mixture into each prosciutto cup. Top each cheese-filled prosciutto cup with chopped pistachios.
Transfer the prosciutto cups with goat cheese appetizers to a serving platter and serve immediately.
