This is a wonderful spread to serve at an informal dinner party. Cream cheese is blended with Gorgonzola and white wine, then rolled in paprika and pistachio nuts and formed into a ball. Serve with crackers and crusty bread.
I thought this appetizer was simple and extremely tasty. I decided to double the gorgonzola (and leave out the cheddar and paprika)...I thought the level of blue cheese taste was just right (not overpowering). I served this with slices of toasted baguette, and with slices of pears (soaked in lemon juice to prevent browning). I was able to make everything hours in advance, and everyone loved it.

This recipe was devoured at a recent Christmas party. It has been requested that I make this for every family get-together from now on. I had a bottle of Reisling on hand, so that's what I used for the white wine. Delicious!! Even those who weren't crazy about bleu cheese loved it. - 18 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
