- ¼ pound blue cheese (the Spanish variety is cabrales, but gorgonzola or roquefort may be used)
- 2 teaspoons raisins
- 1 Tablespoon white grape juice or cider
- 1 Tablespoon cream
- 2 Tablespoons apple, finely chopped (about half a peeled apple)
- 2 Tablespoons walnuts, finely chopped
- ⅛ teaspoon dried thyme
- Remove blue cheese from refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature (let it sit on the counter for an hour or more).
- Soak the raisins in the fruit juice for 20 minutes.
- Using a spoon, remove the raisins from the juice and set aside.
- When the cheese has reached room temperature, place it in a small mixing bowl.
- Add the cream and fruit juice.
- Using a fork or wooden spoon, combine ingredients until smooth.
- Stir in raisins, apple, walnuts, and thyme.
- Serve with crackers.
Found this on the internet while searching for spanish foods. Okay, so the ONLY thing I did differently was use goat cheese instead of bleu cheese, mainly because a few of my friends don't like bleu cheese. But this came out wonderfully! It's a little rich with the goat cheese, but well worth every bite.
