  • ½ cup pecans finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh rosemary leaves finely chopped
  • ½ cup dried cranberries chopped
  • 8 ounces goat cheese
  • 6 Tbsp. honey divided


  • Combine chopped pecans, rosemary leaves, and cranberries in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.
  • Place the goat cheese log in a rimmed bowl and drizzle 4 tablespoons of the honey on top. Turn the cheese log while spreading the honey evenly across the entire surface with clean fingers.
  • 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.
  • 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!
