This rich and creamy cherry cheese log is infused with the fresh flavors of orange zest and ginger, then cored with a crunchy layer of pecan.

  1. Drain the cherries, then rinse them very well.

  2. Chop the cherries, rinse them again, and dry them with a paper towel until the paper towel is not becoming red every time it touches them. (The cherries must be very dry and well rinsed).

  3. In a stand mixer (or a large bowl with a hand mixer), beat the cream cheese, sugar, orange zest, and ground ginger until well combined, then barely fold in the cherries.

  4. Scoop the cream cheese mixture onto a large 15×30-inch piece of plastic wrap.

  5. Shape the cream cheese into a log-like mixture, then close the plastic wrap over it. Twist the edges in opposite directions to have a tight log shape.

  7. Remove the cheese from the refrigerator and unroll from the plastic wrap, then roll it in the pecan pieces until well coated.
