1 8 oz. package Archer Farms shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c. dried cherries
4 slices Archer Farms bacon, cooked & rough crumbled
1 cup chopped pecans
2 tbsp. unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp. coarse, ground pepper
In the large bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade attachment put in the chopped pecans and process until the pieces are all roughly 1/4" in size (this does not have to be exact, just a guide). Put nuts into bowl, set aside. I do the pecans first as then the next addition will clean up the oils from the nuts.
Then add the cherries, cheese and bacon and process until 1/4" in size as well. Pour into a mixing bowl and add cream cheese, butter, salt and pepper. Using a hand-mixer or a stand mixer, mix ingredients until well-combined. Using a spook, scoop out rough, tablespoon-sized amounts onto a piece of parchment paper - you should get around 30-36. Then roll them each one into a ball in the palms of your hands, placing it into the bowl of chopped pecans, rolling it in there and then rolling it around in your palms again to adhere the nuts to the surface.
Place in a covered container in the refrigerator and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
