In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Curried Chutney Cheese Spread. This is a mild, sweet spread composed of cream cheese, toasted almonds, chutney and curry powder. It is a nice departure from cheese spreads with sharp cheese and veggies. Ingredients: 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened to room temperature ½ cup toasted finely chopped almonds (I used slivered almonds. I chopped them in an electric kitchen chopper and toasted them in a small skillet on the stove in ½ tablespoon olive oil, stirring constantly.) ¼ cup chutney ½ teaspoon curry powder In a mixing bowl, mix together an 8-oz. package of softened cream cheese, ½ cup toasted finely chopped almonds, ¼ cup chutney, and ½ teaspoon curry powder. Beat with an electric mixer at medium speed until well-blended. Spoon mixture into a nice serving dish. Cover and chill for about 8 hours. Serve with dippers, such as apple slices, ginger snaps, and a variety of crackers. This cheese spread has a delicious taste, and you can make it diet-friendly by using fat-free cream cheese, and by serving it with apple and pear slices, and also some celery sticks! I hope you enjoy this recipe! –Betty ?

Ingredients: 1 egg 2 teaspoons water 1 sheet puff pastry dough from a 17.3-oz. package, thawed 1 teaspoon seasoned black pepper, to taste (or seasoning of your choice) sprigs of rosemary and parsley (or any fresh or dried herbs that you like) about 4 varied types of cheese, presented in an interesting configuration (I used packaged pimiento cheese, muenster cheese, mozzarella medallions, and Dutch cheese with cumin seed.) In a small bowl, place 1 egg and 2 teaspoons water and beat well. Set aside. Unfold the thawed sheet of puff pastry and place it in an ungreased shallow baking pan. Brush the top side with egg mixture. Cut 4 (1/2-inch-wide) strips from the pastry, cutting parallel to the seam of the pastry. (I cut 2 from each side for symmetry.) Remove the 4 strips and place them along the edge of the puff pastry, trimming ends. With a fork, prick the bottom of the pastry, allowing steam to escape as the pastry cooks.
