Goat Cheese Truffles


  • 1 cup shelled pistachios
  • 9 oz fresh Milner Valley chevre (goat cheese)
  • 24 seedless red or green grapes


  • To roast the nuts, preheat the oven to 350F. Spread the pistachios on an ungreased baking sheet and roast in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. In a small food processor, process the toasted pistachios until finely chopped, but not powdered. Set aside in a small bowl.
  • Put about 2 tsp of chevre in the palm of your hand, flatten into a disk and place a grape on top. Fold the cheese over the grape and roll it to completely cover the grape in the cheese. Place it on a baking sheet. Repeat this process until all of the grapes are covered or you run out of cheese.
  • Set the baking sheet with the grapes in the refrigerator, uncovered, for about 15 minutes to firm them up. Then, roll the cheese-coated grapes in the chopped pistachios until they are coated. Return them to the refrigerator until you are ready to serve them/ They will keep, covered with plastic wrap, for about 4 days
