Cheese Spread With Brandied Cranberries

READY IN: 1hr 20mins

I made this as an appetizer for Thanksgiving this year. I found it on a publication from a local grocer. You can easily substitute regular cheddar cheese for the white.

Found this on the site and it is very good! As a matter of fact we served it one night when there was a dinner meeting here and it was very well received. We served it with cocktail rye and pumpernickel toasted lightly. I am glad you shared this with the rest of my friends. Diane
