Reviews for Brandied Blue Cheese Spread
"Wow! This recipe is even better than it sounds. I made it for my family Christmas tree trimming get-together and everyone (even my most persnickety aunt) thought it was absolutely fabulous. So cheesy, salty, and crunchy all at the same time, and that touch of brandy just sent it over the moon. It was so good that I've been asked to bring it to my sister's New Year's Day party -- and a double batch to boot. This one is definitely going into the family recipe book. It's 5 stars all the way!"
