Alouette® Gourmet Cheese
The distinctive flavors of Alouette® Cheese are the result of their rich culinary heritage. From their humble origins in France, they're proud that connoisseurs and consumers alike have made them America’s #1* Brand of Premium Spreadable Cheese.
I tried several of their products, but my favorites were the Alouette® Gourmet Spreadable Cheese Logs. We used bagel crisps to spread it on. My favorite flavor was the Sundried Tomatoes. My aunt preferred the Garlic & Herbs, my mom liked them mixed, and my husband loved them both.
Another favorite was the Soft Spreadable Cheese. The Berries And Cream was a little too "much" for me, but my mom loved it. I really liked the Limited Edition Cheesecake spread on graham crackers!
One of my favorite things to do with the Brie cheese is to bake it in a puff pastry. Here is that recipe, the only difference is that I usually put fruits and nuts in it as well:
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 pkg. (13.2 oz.) Alouette Baby Brie®, Original or Herb
Preheat oven to 400ºF.
Roll out puff pastry to 1/8” thickness.
Place Alouette Baby Brie in center of pastry, pull up sides and crimp to enclose cheese. Turn over and place on cookie sheet.
Bake at 400ºF for 15 – 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and let stand 30 minutes before serving.
They have so much that my whole family loves. Their cheeses were a huge hit over Thanksgiving and they all expect more for Christmas. Be sure to check out the Alouette Gourmet Cheese Recipes for some great ideas!

Chavrie® is a modern goat cheese for food lovers who want to bring a healthy twist to their everyday culinary experience. I honestly had never used goat cheese while cooking, and am so glad that I was introduced to Chavrie. They have a ton of great recipes, but one of the best Holiday Recipes is the Chavrie® Goat Cheese Log Rolled in Dried Cranberries.

Evenly distribute cranberries on a sheet of parchment paper
Roll log into the cranberries and wrap with the parchment paper
Firmly roll wrapped log so cranberries adhere to the cheese
