Creamy Stilton with Cranberry Dip

Wedges of apple and pear or celery sticks make this dip an elegant treat. Also great spread on crackers or baguette slices.

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. container cream cheese at room temperature
  • 2 oz. Stilton or blue cheese
  • 1 tbsp. grated onion
  • 1 tbsp. Cranberry Garlic Rum Preserve

Directions:

  1. Place cream cheese in a bowl, blend until smooth.
  2. Add Cranberry Garlic Rum Preserve and grated onion, mixing in well.
  3. Add Stilton and stir until just mixed.
  4. Thin with a little lemon juice if dip is too thick.
  5. Turn mixture into a decorative bowl and top with more crumbled cheese.
  6. Mixture will keep well if covered and refrigerated.
Dip Chillers

Stop by the store and pick up a dip chiller - a few ice cubes and your dip stays chilled for hours.
