Cranberry Pistachio Cheese Log Recipe



Cranberry Pistachio Coating

1 1/4 Cups Fresh Cranberries

1 Cup Salted Pistachios, shelled & roasted

Cheese Log

78 oz Goat Cheese Log or Tub

4 oz Cream Cheese, softened

2 TBS Honey

1/2 tsp Yin & Yang Chinese 5 Spice

¼ tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Zipp Zapp Zopp

1/8 tsp Pepper

Honey, for drizzle


  1. Add cranberries and pistachios to your food processor and chop them into small pieces (but don’t over-process).
  2. Remove ½ cup and add it to a medium bowl.
  3. Add all remaining Goat Cheese Log ingredients to the bowl and stir to combine.
  4. Add this cheese mixture to a large piece of plastic wrap, and form into the shape of a log. Wrap in plastic wrap. Freezer for 20-30 minutes. We want the cheese log slightly firm, so it holds its shape but is still soft enough for the Coating to be pressed into it.
  5. Line counter with about a large piece of parchment paper.
  6. Add Coating ingredients to parchment and spread into a single layer square a little larger than the length of the cheese log. Add cheese log to the edge of the Coating and roll in Coating until evenly coated, pressing coating into the cheese so it sticks. The cheese log can be refrigerated at this point until ready to serve or serve immediately.
  7. When ready to serve, remove from refrigerator 15 minutes beforehand so it can soften.
  8. Drizzle generously with honey just before serving.
  9. Serve with crackers and enjoy!
