You are both very welcome. I made it over Christmas and put it into two small terrines and served with melba toast.

I went to a party last week and got served a round of blue cheese with comb honey on top and toasted pecan. The honey oozes down and you eat it with nice savory biscuits - yum.

Yummy - can't wait to try this. Thanks for sharing.

taniajane, Dec 21, 2:29am
I've had some of this in the fridge for a week samanya, just used up last night on baked potatoes and i think it was even better for having aged a bit. simply delish melted on the potatoes too!

samanya, Dec 21, 3:02am
Thanks taniajane.

Well, as it is kept in the fridge and if your cream cheese has a good expiry date, I would imagine a while. It will actually be more flavoursome if done a few days in advance. Just keep it well covered.
