Directions

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Reserve 1 tablespoon of dried cranberries and pistachios for garnish. Combine remaining dried cranberries and pistachio nuts in a small bowl. Line a small round mixing bowl with plastic wrap.
  2. Beat together cream cheese, butter, blue cheese, and Brie in a bowl until smooth. Spread 1/3 of cheese mixture evenly in the bottom of the plastic wrap-lined bowl. Layer 1/3 of the cranberry-nut mixture over the cheese. Layer cheese mixture with berry-nut mixture twice more, ending with a layer of cranberry-pistachio mixture.
  3. Cover the bowl with more wrap, pressing the wrap down onto the spread to compress it. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. To serve, take plastic wrap off the top of the bowl and turn the layered dip out onto a serving dish. Remove remaining plastic wrap, and sprinkle reserved cranberries and pistachios around the spread to garnish.

Excellent, do not like blue cheese so used Camembert instead. Adding salt and pepper for seasoning.

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 ...

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 d...

This was a fantastic and festive dish to serve for Christmas. I served it with both ginger snaps and whole wheat crackers and they were both a hit!

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 p...

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 snarfin...

Several people said how much they liked it but the bleu cheese definitely gave it a sharp tang. The Cranberries helped balance it.
