Fruit & Nut Cheeselogs

Ingredients

1 cup cottage cheese, drained

¾ cup cream cheese, softened

¼ cup butter, softened

½ cup grated quick-melting cheese

3 tbsp parmesan cheese

3 tbsp finely chopped dried fruit (raisins, cranberries or apricot)

¼ cup chopped walnuts

2 tbsp chopped parsley

extra chopped parsley

extra parmesan cheese

Directions

 
  1. Using a mixer, blend all cheeses and butter on low speed until smooth. Fold in chopped fruits, nuts and parsley.
  2. Using an 8″ long sheet of GLAD Cook ‘n’ Bake, place approximately ¾ cup of cheese mixture in the middle of the sheet. Fold the paper and using your palm, lightly press the mixture towards you to form a log. Roll the paper until desired thickness of the log is achieved. Secure both ends by twisting simultaneously like wrapping a candy. Chill until firm.
  3. Unwrap the logs and roll in chopped parsley or parmesan cheese if desired. Serve with toasted bread or crackers as a spread or over a freshly grilled steak, chicken or pork.
