Almond Cheese - Dip/Starter

A cheesecake as a cheese dip - yes indeed!!

I discovered this little beauty on a recent trip and just loved the addition of a sweet dessert as a starter!

Almond Cheese

  • 250g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 60g softened butter
  • 125g of neufchatel cheese (can substitute cream cheese)
  • 2 teaspoons of french mustard
  • 1 tablespoon of brandy
  • Flaked almonds, toasted

Combine the ingredients except the almonds and beat until smooth.  Chill for 30mins, then form into a small round cake or log.

Meanwhile place 2-3 tablespoons of flaked almonds on a tray and under a hot grill for about 5 minutes or until golden brown.

When cool, roll the cheese log in the almonds or pack on top.

Serve with thin crisp crackers, trimmed radishes and celery - yum!
