Cheddar Spread

Comment on this recipe

This is a very easy recipe that stores well. However when I make it, it isn't around for long. Make sure to use "good" sherry. I don't use the cooking sherry that you find in the grocery store, as I don't think it has a good flavor.

Ingredients

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 cup sherry
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
Crackers or bread to serve

Instructions

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add cheddar cheese, sherry and garlic powder, salt, white pepper and dry mustard. Beat until well blended. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate eight hours or overnight to allow flavors to blend. Store in refrigerator. Makes two cups spread. Let stand at room temperature 20-30 minutes or until softened. Serve with crackers or bread.
