HL Café’s Maple Walnut Goat Cheese Log

  • 4 cups walnuts
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 10-oz log fresh goat cheese

Perfect for holiday gatherings, this treat has a wonderful combination of sweet maple, tangy goat cheese, and ever-so-slightly bitter walnuts.  It’s wonderful- and wonderfully easy- served with crackers and fresh fruit!

Preheat oven to 350°F.  Combine walnuts and maple syrup in a large bowl and mix well.  Spray a sheet tray with cooking spray and spread nuts over it evenly.  Roast until dry, tossing them every 10 minutes to prevent burning.  Let cool and process in food processor until coarsely ground.  Spread onto a cutting board or other flat surface and roll goat cheese log in nuts until coated thoroughly, and serve.
