  • 12 ounces goat cheese
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped hazelnuts
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped pistachios
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  • On a shallow plate add the cinnamon and nutmeg and stir to combine. Roll the goat cheese in the spices before adding the finely chopped cranberries. Press the log into the cranberries and roll to coat evenly. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Finely chop all the nuts and place them onto another shallow plate. Press the second goat cheese log into the nuts, rolling until coated. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Then finely mince up fresh dill and add it to a shallow plate along with coarse ground black pepper. Roll and press the goat cheese log into the dill until all sides are coated.
  • Finally, pour about a tablespoon of maple syrup onto your serving platter and place the cranberry log on top of it. Next to it, do the same with a tablespoon (or so) of honey and place the nutty goat cheese log on top of it as well. Lastly, place the dill and black pepper goat cheese log on the platter and serve with your favorite crackers.
