Ingredients

  • 8 oz. plain goat cheese
  • 8 oz. cream cheese softened
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup chopped dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup minced mint leaves or any other herb such as parsley or basil

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, mix the cheeses together until smooth and creamy with a spatula. Place in refrigerator and allow to chill for 30 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, mix the pecans, cranberries and mint.
  • Scoop 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture and make a ball. (The cheese will be sticky.) Drop the ball into the bowl and gently roll the cheese ball around in the mixture until it is fully coated. Repeat with remaining cheese.
  • Place them on a piece of wax paper and chill in the refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours or until ready to serve.

Notes

  • Chilling the cheese mixture 1 day ahead of time will make them easier to shape into balls.
  • To Store: Keep chilled in closed container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • To Freeze: These do not freeze well.
