“When I was a kid my great aunt Margaret would serve this with crackers before dinner. All the adults raved about it and I was not impressed. Then I grew up and tried it again and changed my mind – it’s delicious! Prep time includes chilling time. NOTE: It’s very important that the cheeses be at room temperature. They won’t mix properly if they are cold.”
