Preparing this Treat

Directions

Combine chopped pecans, rosemary leaves, and cranberries in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.

Sprinkle the chopped pecan mixture across the top of the honey-covered cheese log and gently press into the surface until the entire log is evenly coated.

 

4

Drizzle the remaining honey on a small serving platter or round plate as shown to hold the cheese log in place. Position the goat cheese in the center and sprinkle any remaining cranberry-pecan mixture around it. Serve immediately with your choice of crackers or crostini. Enjoy!
