    This was excellent. My friends scarfed it right down. I prepared the cheese mixture the night before (added a little Dijon mustard) and refrigerated it. Party day I let it come to room temp, sprinkled with almonds and baked. Perfecto.

    Rave reviews from my family! Read other reviews and also added a few personal touches--I did add craisins and used peach/mango preserves instead of apricots-also added dijon mustard! Since Thanksgiving turkey used oven space, I baked it the night before (minus almonds;)and refrigerated; reheated in microwave and added toasted almonds last. Can't wait to make it again!!

    I love this hot and cold :-) my mom had a Mexican style mix of cheeses, which tasted great in the mix. I also used my food chopper to cut the the apricots, that worked wonderfully. I would make this for any party.
