  • Beat cream cheese, pesto and mustard with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.
  • Place half of the cream cheese mixture in 2-cup plastic wrap-lined bowl; press cream cheese mixture firmly into bowl. Top with peppers. Cover with remaining cream cheese mixture, spreading to edge of bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until firm.
  • Unmold cream cheese mixture onto serving plate; remove plastic wrap. Serve as a spread for the crackers.

Special Extra

Use a nicely shaped 2-cup terrine or mold in place of the bowl. Be sure to line it with plastic wrap before filling with cream cheese mixture. After unmolding, smooth any irregularities with small knife or spatula.

Variation Note

Cream cheese mixture can be prepared using a food processor instead of the electric mixer.


Prepare as directed, using PHILADELPHIA 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese and/or GREY POUPON Country Dijon Mustard.
