Two 4-ounce packages fresh goat cheese 

3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill

1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped dried cranberries  

1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped skinned pistachios  

Crackers, for serving


  1. Put the packages of goat cheese in the freezer to harden slightly, about 15 minutes.
  2. Spread the dill out on a cutting board to dry for a few minutes. Mix together the cranberries and pistachios on another part of the cutting board.
  3. Remove the cheese logs from the freezer and take them out of the package. Gently roll one log over the dill, coating it almost completely. Do the same with the second log, rolling it in the cranberries and pistachios. Wrap the logs in plastic wrap and chill until time to serve.
  4. Serve with crackers.
