Dried Fruit and Cream Cheese Roulade

An impressive cheese roll is easy to make when you use cream cheese, dried fruit and goat cheese. The nutty coating is a nice complement.

1        tablespoon red currant or apple jelly
1/4     cup chopped dried calimyrna figs
1/4     cup chopped dried apricots
2        ounces crumbled chèvre (goat) cheese
1/4     cup chopped walnuts
1        tablespoon chopped fresh chives
40      assorted crackers
  • 1 Place cream cheese between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Roll into 9x6-inch rectangle with rolling pin. Remove top sheet of wrap. Carefully spread jelly over cream cheese. Sprinkle with figs and apricots to within 1/2 inch of edges. Sprinkle with cheese.
  • 2 Using bottom sheet of wrap to help lift and starting at a long side, carefully roll up cheese mixture into a log. Carefully press walnuts into outside of log, rolling slightly to cover all sides. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours to set.
  • 3 To serve, place roulade on serving plate. Sprinkle with chives. Serve with crackers.
