    TOPPING

  • Directions

    CHEESE BALL
    1. In a mixer combine the butter, cheeses, dates, cranberries, scallion and salt.
    2. Add Blue Agave Nectar Light and mix.
    3. Place onto a piece of parchment, wrap loosely and chill for 30 minutes.
    4. Using parchment, shape into a ball and then put aside.
    CANDIED PECANS
    1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. Bring sugar, water and salt to a boil, pour in nuts and stir to coat.
    3. Using a slotted spoon to drain liquid, spread nuts on a silpat-lined sheet pan.
    4. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
    5. Stir nuts to separate while they cool or spread them onto a cool surface, such as granite or marble, separating them as they cool, so they don’t stick together in a mass.
    FINISHING TOUCHES
    1. On a clean surface, spread out the candied pecan pieces and chopped herbs. Roll the cheese ball around until covered in herbs and pecans.
    2. Chill until ready to serve.
