Holiday Cheese Log Recipe

 What a wonderful holiday appetizer.
This is so simple and can be thrown together in minutes.
Packed full of flavor, it is sure to please any crowd.
This recipe comes from a faithful reader of A'lil Country Sugar:
Mary Howard
I'm so glad she sent me this recipe, because it was a huge hit
at my Thanksgiving dinner.
And my (soon to be) daughter-in-law even used it to spread
on her panini sandwich before grilling.....
She made herself a fabulous lunch with this cheese log.
 All you have to do is throw all ingredients into your Kitchen Aid mixer
bowl, attach the paddle, and mix for a few minutes.
After mixing, take it out with your hands and shape into a log.
Easy-Peasy-Lemon-Squeezy..... 
 I rolled mine in the leftover pecans.
I couldn't get a photo of the log being rolled because my hands were all messy.
But I sprinkled the pecans on a piece of saran and rolled.
You can use the same piece of saran to wrap around the log to place in the fridge.
Serve with your favorite crackers.
Holiday Cheese Log

1 pkg. cream cheese, soft
3-5 cloves garlic, finely chopped (I suggest staying on the low side of the 5)
1/2 tsp. cayanne pepper
1/2 c. pecans, finely chopped

Blend all together using only 1/4 c. of pecans, and roll into a log. Roll the log in the remaining pecans. Chill and serve with crackers.

  6. Clearly this is exactly what I refer to a gorgeous blog article! Do you use this blog for personal purposes exclusively or you still use it to get profit from it?
