Pistachio/Goat Cheese Grapes

Ingredients:
½ lb. ‘Chevre’ Goat Cheese
½ lb. Cream Cheese
40 Seedless Green Grapes, washed and dried
½ lb. Shelled Pistachios

Procedure:
Pulse the Pistachios in a food processor until finely minced, being careful not to over-process.  Set aside.
Combine the Goat Cheese and the Cream Cheese and mix well.  Chill the mixture.
Wrap a small amount of cheese mixture around each grape and roll by hand to distribute evenly.  Lay out on a lined sheet pan and chill well.
Just prior to serving, roll the grapes in the nut powder and shape a bit further by hand.  Do not refrigerate once they have been rolled out.
Arrange the grapes on a plate or platter in the shape of a natural bunch of grapes.

Variations:
Use any soft, sharp cheese for the Goat Cheese, such as Gorgonzola or Stilton.
Use Red or Black Grapes and substitute toasted Black Sesame Seeds for the Pistachios.
