"I bought my Cuisinart back in 1983. This is the very first recipe I made in it, and have made it many times since."

Ready In:

  • Place nuts in food processor and process until finely chopped; it takes about 10 seconds.
  • Add both cheeses.
  • Process until very smooth; again, it should only take about 10 seconds.
  • Pack into a bowl and refrigerate until serving; this is best if allowed to chill for a few hours.
  • A dribble of brandy or port added when you add the cheeses doesn't hurt.

    This is the first recipe I made in my food processor too. YUM, delicious. I chose this because it looked so easy (and it was) all these ingredients together are fabulous. We ate this with triscuits and gobbled it all up last night while watching T.V. THANKS, this is a keeper.

    Lennie, this was DELICIOUS!! I love all 3 ingredients, so how could it not be?! Great blue cheese flavor that was not overpowering, but not too subtle. I will absolutely make this again. Thanks for giving me a real 'keeper' of a recipe!

    Made this over Thanksgiving weekend for our visiting family who love pecans and blue cheese (I added a bit more of each than the recipe called for). It was easy and delicious. I'll be doing this one again. Thanks!

    This was my last hope for an appetizer to bring to a party as my efforts towards another recipe failed miserably, and I had to come up with something fast. This was so amazing, it whipped up quickly, effortlessly, and was a real hit. It is so good that it's addictive. I plan to make it again, but I'm scared that I'll eat it all. This is actually better than chocolate, if that's possible. Thanks Lennie for yet another great recipe.
