Step 1

Prep ahead by soaking your raw cashews in water, overnight is best but 2-4 hours is sufficient enough.
Measure and add everything into a food processor (minus the cranberries & pistachios), pulsing until smooth. Scrape down the sides as needed.
Scoop mixture into the center of plastic wrap and twist to form a ball. Chill for 1-2 hours. You can divide the cashew cheese into two for smaller portions.
Remove from the fridge and roll in a mixture of dried cranberries and crushed pistachios, until completely covered.
Cover again with plastic wrap and chill until ready to serve.

Will keep for up to 7-10 days, wrapped and refrigerated.
