Four Roses Bourbon “Wildcat” Blue Cheese Ball

  • 8oz Stilton bleu cheese
  • 4oz cream cheese (softened)
  • 4 T unsalted butter (softened)
  • 2 T Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon
  • 1 C whipping cream
  • 1 C toasted pecans or walnuts, crushed

Place the cheeses and butter in a food processor and mix until well blended.  Add bourbon and continue to mix.  In a separate bowl, whip the cream stiff peaks begin to form, then stir in 1/4 of the whipped cream.  Process with the cheese mixture until incorporated then add the rest of the whipped cream.  To toast the nuts spread a single layer on a large sheet pan and toast in a 350 degree oven for approx. 10 minutes (don’t let them burn).  Add to cooled nuts to the cheese mixture, form into a ball, cover with plastic wrap and let rest in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours.  Serve with crackers or fruit slices such as pears and apples.
