I had alot of a soft blue cheese that we purchased from our local cheese store. We put alot of it in the freezer because you can only eat so much blue cheese at one time. I saw this recipe and thought I would give it a try. I didn't have feta cheese so I basically added all ingredients but the feta and added one more 8oz cream cheese and it is fabulous! Perfect to take to our Christmas gatherings.

I didn't like it AT ALL-I'm not a fan of bitter cheeses. I doubled the recipe to make a large tree shape: not much of it got eaten- partially because I made it look like a Christmas topiary, but, also because others don't like the blue cheese/feta, cheeses' bitter tastes. However, some loved it.
