Sheep Dip (Sheep Dip!)

This is from Ireland. Now I'm not sure when Ireland started making feta and ricotta cheeses but it's intro reads: "Cheeses made from sheep's milk are quite popular in Ireland, and this tasty concoction uses two - feta and ricotta. Whether your feta and ricotta come from the milk of sheep, cows, or goats, the mixture will be delicious."

I tinkered w/your recipe a bit, but the outcome was yummy good & stayed true to the heart of the recipe. Green onions & fresh herbs are rarely available here, so I used chives + dried dill & added garlic (a must for me). Everything works here & I esp loved the brandy flavor & the textural crunch of the pine nuts. I served it w/Baked Tortilla Chips by echo echo + adds as shown in the pic. I loved every bite of my lunch chow today, Annacia. Thx for sharing your recipe w/us. :-)
