Juicy, tart cranberries complement a delicious spread made with three types of tasty cheese.
packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
cup Swiss almond cold-pack cheese food (from 8-oz container)
teaspoon white pepper
teaspoon garlic powder
cup whole berry cranberry sauce
Sliced almonds, if desired
In medium bowl, beat all ingredients except cranberry sauce, almonds and crackers with electric mixer on medium-low speed until smooth.
Line 2-cup mold with plastic wrap. Spoon cheese mixture into mold. Cover and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours but no longer than 2 days.
When ready to serve, turn mold upside down onto serving plate and remove plastic wrap. Spoon cranberry sauce over mold; sprinkle with almonds. Serve with crackers.
Shape cheese mixture into a 6-inch star or ball, if you don't have a 2-cup mold.
