2 cups finely shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 jar (6.75 ounce size) whole roasted almonds
1 sprig fresh rosemary or parsley


In a medium bowl, combine the cheddar cheese, blue cheese, heavy cream, and mustard; mix until well combined. Cover and chill for 2 hours.

Spoon onto a serving dish and form into a pinecone shape. Place the almonds in the cheese mixture to make it look like a pinecone, covering the surface completely. Place the herb sprig at the wide end of the pinecone and serve, or cover and chill until ready to serve.
