What you need:
1 pound cream cheese, at room temp
1 stick butter, at room temp
1 1/2 cups goat cheese
1/2-1 cup mexi shredded cheese
6 tablespoons brown mustard
crackers to serve
cute cupid the reindeer cheese spreader
Step 1) Beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add very soft butter cut into small pieces. Blend well. Add goat cheese and mustard. Blend well. Add in mexi cheese until cheese is able to form into a ball. I put the ball of cheese into the freezer to harden just a bit before rolling in nuts.
This project was a huge fail for me. I intended for the ball to be in the shape of a pine cone and to have the sliced almonds sticking out of the ball to look just like a pine cone. Welllll cheese was too soft to form a pine cone shape. Annnnd the stupid sliced almonds were too thin to push into the cheese. But I improvised and still had a yummy finished product.
