Gruyere Pinecone Spread


This Gruyere Pinecone Spread is a beautiful way to spice up your holiday cheese boards!

What You Need

Gruyere Pinecone Spread


  1. Beat Neufchatel cheese and dry soup mix in medium bowl until blended. Add shredded cheese; mix well.
  2. Divide cheese mixture in half. Shape each half into 5x2-1/2-inch oval that is slightly pointed at one end to resemble a pinecone. Place on serving plate, leaving spaces around sides of both pinecones. Insert nuts, at a slight angle and in horizontal rows, into cheese mixture as shown in photo.
  3. Tuck rosemary sprigs around pinecones to resemble tree branches.
  4. Refrigerate 2 hours. Let pinecones stand at room temperature 15 min. before serving to soften slightly.
  5. Serve with WHEAT THINS.
