This was in one of my mother's recipe books. She entertained a lot and this must have been one of her spreads.


  1. Beat Roquefort cheese, cream cheese and butter until smooth.
  2. Gradually add cognac beating steadily.
  3. Serve with fruit and bread.

DH had to work today (Sat), so I decided to make a half recipe of this as a spec treat for us to share when he got home ~ & spec it was! I made it exactly as written & served it w/homemade bread + crackers. The prob w/Roquefort cheese at our house is DH makes it vanish faster than I can buy it. This recipe stretches the fridge-life of a chunk of Roquefort cheese, adds richness w/butter & cream cheese & then elevates it to spec w/the cognac. It is perfect as is, but I did sprinkle chives on top to add a color variant for the pic. We loved it & will repeat it often, so thx for sharing your mom's recipe w/us. :-)

I made up half a batch of this for Christmas Eve and have just completed a second half-batch for New Year's Eve. It's a lovely spread to have for more special and 'sophisticated' moments. I made the first batch exactly as written and enjoyed it ver much. I have made 1 addition and 1 change in my second batch - I added lots of chopped toasted walnuts and port instead of the cognac. It tastes wonderful, too. Thanks.
