I've got an easy recipe today that's sure to wow your cheese-loving holiday guests! It's a 3-tier Cheese Ball Tower and making it is super-simple because I'm using pre-made cheese balls paired with my own toppings. For my tiers, I've paired the sharp cheddar with nutty pecans, port wine with sweet and tart dried cherries, and the smoky bacon with crunchy almonds. I also made some cute cheese ball pinecones to decorate the tray with and I'll show you how to make it all + how to enter to win a Visa gift card in the post below!

This easy fig and walnut chutney is fragrant with port, cinnamon, star anise, orange zest and maple syrup. It smells just like the holidays, and it’s the perfect addition to cheese platters or cheese plates. For an easy crostini, spoon the chutney over fresh ricotta or brie on toasted baguette slices. It’s also excellent with roasted turkey or pork (as well as on turkey and pork burgers!), and it makes a killer sandwich with cheese (think gruyere, Comté, brie or Taleggio) and arugula. You’ll need cheesecloth and butcher’s twine to bundle the whole spices but if you don’t have one you could use a tea steeper or just add the spices and fish them out at the end.
This dessert tastes like cheesecake in a bowl, but with only one-twentieth of the effort of a regular cheesecake! Reduced vanilla-infused port (be sure to use ruby port, not tawny) creates a gorgeous sauce for frozen cherries. The cherries and sauce get served over fresh ricotta cheese. Use the best quality ricotta you can find—the ingredient list should contain only milk and/or whey, salt and vinegar (no stabilizers or gums). You can find the ultra good stuff (which you will want to eat with a spoon!) at Italian markets and specialty cheese stores, but some solid supermarket brands include Organic Valley, Calabro and Biazzo. If the ricotta is quite thick, feel free to stir in milk until creamy. Also, many high quality ricottas are naturally sweet, but feel free to sweeten the ricotta with sugar if you prefer. The cherries in port are also delicious over ice cream, yogurt or pancakes!
