"Inspired by the flavors of an entree at our favorite end of the week chain restaurant. With blue cheese, candied pecans, and cranberries, you'll love this easy cheese spread on crackers." — Ramona

crumbled blue cheese
cream cheese, softened
chopped candied pecans
chopped dried cranberries
This has a great combo of ingredients and everyone loved it. I didn't have to time to make or find candies pecans, so I used regular ones, but toasted them first. Yum!
I made this as an appetizer for Thanksgiving with my family. Everyone tried a bite but the overwhelming response was that noone liked it at all. Although everyone in my family does like blue cheese, it just didnt tast right and certainly didnt look appetizing when the candied nuts I had used...to add a little extra sweetness...started to change the dip to an awful brownish looking color. Overall, not good. We'll not make this again.
Very good mix of flavors. I would add about 1/2 of the blue cheese, and a little sour cream as well.
This recipe was amazing. I made my own candied pecans which I recommend. The cranberries and pecans really complimented the blue cheese.
I'm sorry, we just didn't care for this. I used craisins and toasted, chopped pecans so the color was fine but the flavors just didn't seem to meld. We love this combination in a salad form so I had high hopes. I also added a bit of heavy cream to make this creamier/easier to spread and to dilute the strong blue cheese tang but it didn't seem to help. Thanks anyway.
A HUGE hit at my party last night. I candied my own pecans (using a recipe on cooks.com)
I made this for Thanksgiving last year and it was requested again by my family. I doubled the recipe to serve 30 people and we had none leftover!
It was gobbled down in minutes!!
