Pistachio Cranberry Goat Cheese Roll

This is a yummy and extremely easy 4 ingredient appetizer or hor dourve that always seems to impress. It takes all of five minutes to throw together and the flavors are very complimentary together. I often make this for New Years Eve, the super bowl, girls night, and various baby or wedding showers. You will need:

1 goat cheese log (I used a 10 ounce, any size will do, there is also often enough to do a second roll)
1 cup of shelled pistachios
1 cup of dried cranberries

First crush the pistachios into pieces about the size of peas. Then put the craisins on a cutting board and chop thoroughly into very little pieces. Mix the cranberries and pistachios on a dinner plate and roll the goat cheese log into the nut mixture pressing down lightly until the goat cheese roll is covered. If your are not serving this right away, you can cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at this point. If you are ready to serve place on desired serving plate and drizzle a fair amount of honey over the top of the roll. Serve with crackers and Enjoy!
