Seneca Blue Moon and Chancellor Spread

  • 1 lb Lively Run Seneca Blue Moon Cheese
  • 1/2 to 1/3 cup Cayuga Ridge Estate Chancellor
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup chopped Walnuts

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then, spread out the chopped walnuts on a baking sheet and place them in the oven to toast for 15 minutes, or until brown and toasty. While the walnuts are toasting, put the cheese and the softened butter into the bowl of a food processor and spin until well blended. Slowly begin adding in the wine until the desired texture is reached. More wine will result in a softer, more spreadable texture; less will result in a firmer texture. Remove the cheese mixture from the food processor and slowly stir in the toasted walnuts. Serve on crackers or on pieces of toasted baguette. Feel free to experiment with this recipe by adding spices or substitution different nuts.
