  • In a food processor, blend 1 pkg. of cream cheese and the feta cheese until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary. Spoon into a plastic baggie and refrigerate.
  • Add the remaining 1 pkg. of cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, and pesto sauce to the food processor and process until well blended. Add the toasted pine nuts and pulse several times to mix. Place mixture into a plastic wrap-lined bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Add the sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, water, olive oil and balsamic vinegar to the food processor and process until smooth. Set aside.
  • Unwrap the pesto ball and turn onto a plate. Gently shape into an oval. Cut the tip off of one corner of the feta mixture baggie and pipe onto the pesto ball in a twisting brain-like pattern. Spoon the sun-dried tomato sauce around the cheese ball and serve with crackers.

How to Toast pine nuts

To toast pine nuts, place in a dry skillet over medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring frequently.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was a hit at the Halloween Party We went to Halloween Parties on Saturday and Sunday night and I made this for both of them. Everyone said it was delicious and loved the 'brain'. When I left both parties there was only about a quarter of it left. Overall, very easy to make. I would recommend making the feta cream cheese last, and pipe it on right after making it, instead of putting it in the fridge. The first time I made it, I had to scrape it off and re-pipe it after it had warmed up a bit. It goes on a lot easier and doesn't break when it's not so cold. I also made a 'cleaver' by purchasing a knife from the dollar store and cutting out a 'cleaver' blade with cardboard and wrapping it in aluminum foil over the existing blade.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Missing instructions I am making this recipe now and also noticed that the instructions don't include what to do with the 1/4 cup olive oil. I am guessing that it goes in with the sun dried tomato mixture based on the order of ingredients, but I am not sure.
