I have made this without blue cheese as well, just as yummy. You can also use Alouette Creme de Brie (in the specialty cheese case at the grocery) to simplify your prep work. *This recipe also doubles easily.
This stuff is absolutely wonderful. I was looking for something to use up a bit of leftover brie and found this. I actually had all the ingredients on hand. I did add just a tiny dash of maple syrup because when I initally tasted it, it was way to salty. After refrigerating it overnight, it turned out wonderfully. There were 2 cheese balls there tonight, only mine got nearly devoured, lol. I am taking another one of these to another dinner in a few days. I did try the suggestion of a gingersnap and it is indeed different. It was too "gingery" for my tastes but others may like it. A less salty cracker like Wheat things or water crackers would be great with this. It is extrememly rich, but really good!!!
Made this at Christmas for a party. It was very popular; tastes great. It made a large mound of firm spread, enough for two parties. I trimmed it for the second party and it was great. The pistachio-dried cranberry topping made more than enough, so I saved the leftover topping in a baggie and it is great on oatmeal. I will make this again and again...the red cranberries and green pistachios looked so festive. Only thing: I could only find pistachios in the shell and it took me forever by hand to open the shells and remove the nuts. The pads of the fingers I used to pry open the relatively tight shells were sore afterwards. If you can find shelled pistachios, it will save a lot of time and finger-work.
I LOVED this receipe -- made it twice over the holidays. The second time I cut back a little on the blue cheese just as a preference to have tht flavor a little more subtle. Everyone was snarfing it up!
