This spread is similar to the flavor of those cheese logs covered in nuts that you can buy at the grocery store. I'll be making this from now on instead of paying a ridulous amount of money for the store-bought logs. Has a good cheddary flavor and loved the pecans in it. Made for Fall 2013 My 3 Chefs.
I enjoyed this. However, if you want it smokey - it takes MANY more drops to impart the smoke flavor. I chose to rough chop the pecans. There is nothing about this in the recipe, which implies Ameliahead puts them in whole.
