Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded Havarti cheese
  • 1 pkg cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream 35%
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley

Method

In food processor, pur?e together Havarti cheese, cream cheese, cream, garlic, mustard and pepper until smooth; stir in chives and parsley.

Line small, deep bowl with plastic wrap; scrape in cheese mixture, pressing firmly and smoothing top. Cover and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 5 days.)

Unwrap and invert cheese ball onto serving plate.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: You'll need a small, deep bowl that holds at least 2 cups to fit the cheese mixture. If you're not sure of your bowl's capacity, measure 2 cups of water and pour it in to check.

Serve With:
• Crisp crackers, such as pita crisps, whole grain squares or rich butter crackers
• Warm fresh biscuits
• Vegetable crudit?s
• Fresh berries, such as strawberries, blueberries or raspberries
