Ingredients

    • 24 ounces Roquefort cheese
    • 16 ounces cream cheese

    • 2 teaspoons Cognac (or less if preferred)
    • 6 ounces crushed pecans

Instructions

Blend the Roquefort, cream cheese and butter thoroughly and flavor with a little cognac. Add more cream cheese if necessary. The mixture should be quite stiff.
