Cranberry Chutney & Goat Cheese Appetizer Recipe

When you have a crowd coming over sometimes you are looking for something a little more than the usual chips and dip for an appetizer. Cranberry Chutney & Goat Cheese sounds sophisticated to me but is so easy to make! When I have people coming over I need easy. I always go way overboard and am scrambling at the last minute to actually get it all pulled off. Appetizers like this make pulling a function off easier.
