When the hour is almost up, whisk All-Purpose Flour (1 cup), Ground Mahlab (1/2 tsp), and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (2 pinches) together in a shallow bowl.
step 4
Get out a medium saucepan and fill it halfway with the Canola Oil (as needed). Use a deep fry thermometer to make sure the temperature reaches and stays around 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
step 5
Get out the goat cheese balls and batter. In batches of two, coat the goat cheese balls in the seasoned flour first, followed by the batter. Drop them in the oil and stir them around so that they don't stick.

After a minute, they should be perfectly golden and crispy. Remove them with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat this with the remaining 14 goat cheese balls in batches of two until they are all fried to perfection.
step 7
Pile them on a plate or in a bowl and drizzle the Honey (1 Tbsp) on top, followed by the Shelled Pistachios (1 Tbsp). Enjoy!
