      This recipe is INCREDIBLE!! I had at a party the other evening and couldn't stop eating it. I can't wait to make it for my family for Christmas! UPDATE: while a little time consuming to assemble, it is well worth it. Putting the cream cheese in the freezer for about 30 minutes helped it to keep its shape better as you sliced it. Also, I don't recommend substituting red wine vinegar for the white. It overpowered the other flavors a little bit. Everyone enjoyed it, and it was a lovely addition to our assortment of appetizers.

      I love love love this recipe. I've been making it for 5 years now, and I'm pretty sure I only get invites to parties just so I bring this along. The only changes I make are I use red wine vinegar instead of white, and I also use Pepperjack cheese alternated with the cheddar. All in all it's a never fail appetizer to share.

      This was quite tasty - and easy. I used Triscuits - between the crackers and the appetizer something was rather salty - could just be me - I'm "sensitive" to salt - I'll be making this again though. I used Philly Cream cheese, and a White Sharp Cheddar cheese. Update: It was the triscuits that were so salty - by the way - the longer the chesse marinates - the better it becomes!
