Holiday Goat Cheese Log

Holiday Goat Cheese Log

This started as a Christmas treat, but was so popular that it's now served at all special family gatherings. The idea came from a recipe in a Colonial Williamsburg cookbook, but I modified it to get rid of peppercorns and add fruit. Garnish with parsley sprigs and serve with crackers.

  1. Step 1

    Pulse almonds in the bowl of a food processor until chopped. Add parsley and chives; continue to pulse until incorporated. Add cherries and process until everything is finely chopped and you have a nice mixture of red and green.
  2. Step 2

    Pour nut mixture onto a flat work surface and spread into a thin layer.
  3. Step 3

    Roll goat cheese log in the nut mixture until fully covered. Carefully pick it up and tap the ends of the log into the nut mixture to cover. Place on a serving dish.
