Cranberry & Pecan Cheeseball
Recipe type: Appetiser
Serves: About 10 servings
This Cranberry Cheeseball is the perfect combination of creamy cheese, sweet cranberries and crunchy pecans.
  • 8 oz. Cream Cheese
  • 8 oz. Sharp White Cheddar , finely grated
  • 4 oz. Goat Cheese
  • ⅔ cups Dried Cranberries
  • Approx. 1 cup Pecans, roasted and chopped
  1. In a large bowl or stand mixer, mix together the cream cheese, goat cheese and grated cheddar until completely smooth. Mix in the cranberries.
  2. Transfer the cheese onto plastic wrap or wax paper and use your hands to form a ball. Wrap up the cheese in the plastic wrap or wax paper and place into the fridge. Allow the cheese ball to harden for at least 2 hours, up to overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 ° F. Chop the pecans into small pieces, and place into the oven for about 10 minutes or until the pecans become slightly golden. Be careful not to burn them. Remove from the oven and allow to completely cool.
  4. Once the cheese ball is chilled and firm, remove the plastic wrap. Use your hands to press the pecans onto the outer surface of the cheese ball until completely covered. Chill until you are ready to serve.
