  • 1/4 cup finely chopped salted pistachios
  • 6 ounces fresh goat cheese, room temperature

  2. In a medium bowl, combine goat cheese and cream cheese using a wooden spoon. Form a heaping teaspoon of the cheese mixture into a small ball, and transfer to a small plate or parchment-lined baking sheet; repeat with remaining cheese mixture.

  3. Place peppercorns and pistachios each on two separate plates. Roll 18 of the balls in the peppercorns and the remaining 18 balls in the pistachios.

    I didn't care for the pink peppercorn flavor, but I made them with toasted semsame seeds and they were delicious!
