    FloridaNative's Note:

    A pair of these savory spreads makes a great holiday gift. I made these last Christmas as an appetizer before our big dinner, and I watched them disappear! You can make ahead and wrap each log in heavy-duty plastic wrap and freeze. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. From Christmas with Southern Living 2004, recipe submitted by Charles Flournoy of Dallas, TX. Prep time is cooking time.

      So good! This was such a beautiful addition to our table at our Christmas party! It was delicious and everyone liked it! I would definitely recommend this to anyone! I have a nut chopper which made perfect size pecans to roll in. It's best if the nuts are pretty small. I made as is, except used almost 1/2 tsp ground red pepper and didn't toast the nuts. It really is a beautiful presentation as well as being so delicious! Thanks so much for posting this! I will definitely make again!

      This is an easy and tasty cheese log! I made the whole recipe. We had one and I froze the other one to use at a later time. I used walnuts and I think I would prefer not to have the walnuts toasted, though, next time. I would also finely crush them so they are easier to roll in. I would also add a little more ground red pepper to make it spicier. Thanks for posting! Congratulations on your football pool win for Week #5!

      What a beautiful cheese log. Will be wonderful around the Holidays. Very nice flavor combination. I did sub a couple of things because of what I had on hand. I made only half this recipe since there's only 2 of us. I lacked about 2 tablespoons of having 4 oz of cream cheese so used a couple of tablespoons of light mayo, and my Monterey Jack cheese didn't have peppers so added some chopped jalapeno to it and used the full 1/4 teaspoon of ground red pepper for 1/2 of the recipe. Turned out so delicious and had just the right spice for use. Thanks so much for sharing and congrats on winning week #5
