A Cheesy Throwback That Feels Fresh Again
For many of us, while growing up, holiday gatherings weren't complete without a requisite sphere of cheese covered in herbs or nuts. In her new Effortless Entertaining Cookbook, Meredith Steele reinvents the classic by using a mixture of goat and cream cheeses; the mix-ins are simply chopped, dried cherries and fresh sage. After she presses the mixture into a round form, she spoons cherry preserves and a pinch of flaky sea salt on top for a salty-sweet finish.
