Curry Cheese Spread for a Crowd
This makes enough to serve 20 as a snack, so bring loads of crackers or veggies to go with it. Make it in one big mold or two or three smaller ones. If you don't carry an electric mixer on board, use a fork.
2 packages, 8 ounces each, cream cheese
½ cup white wine or white grape juice
½ teaspoon curry powder (more to taste)
½ cup chopped pecans
1 cup golden raisins
8-ounce package shredded Cheddar cheese
Chopped parsley or finely chopped pecans for garnish
Let the cream cheese come to "room" temperature in a large bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients in the order given. Line a bowl(s) with clear plastic wrap and press in the cheese mixture with the back of a spoon, packing it tightly. Chill well, then turn out onto a platter and remove the plastic wrap. Sprinkle with chopped parsley or nuts and surround with crackers and veggies.
