“This is an excellent cheese spread to make for the holidays. Here in Miami as in Cuba, (BC) - before Castro, it is made as "bocaditos de jamon" and they are used for any & all celebrations. They serve it with a special roll or bun - that is on the sweet side - and they are also for canapes. It needs to chill 4 hours before serving, I didn't post the time needed to chill.”
