Goat Cheese, Grape and Pistachio Truffles Recipe
- 1 1/2 pounds pistachio nuts, shelled, chopped rough (about 1 cup)
- 8 ounces goat cheese, room temperature
- 24 seedless red grapes, stems removed and wiped clean
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spread pistachio nuts on an ungreased baking sheet and toast in the oven for 7 to 9 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool. In a blender or food processor, process the toasted pistachio nuts until finely chopped; set aside.
Put one 1/2 tablespoon of the goat cheese in the palm of one hand and in it place a grape, shaping the mixture around the grape to coat. Repeat process with remaining grapes. Refrigerate on a sheet pan for 15 minutes.
Remove chilled cheese-coated grape balls from the refrigerator and roll them in the prepared pistachio nut mixture to cover completely and refrigerate for approximately 30 minutes or until coating is firm.
Refrigerate until ready to serve. Bring to room temperature 15 minutes before serving.
