Updated November 12, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 (7-oz.) Gouda cheese with red wax coating
  • 1 (3-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder

Steps

  • 1
    With sharp knife, remove about 3-inch diameter slice from top of Gouda cheese. Carefully hollow out, leaving wax coating intact to form shell.
  • 2
    In food processor bowl with metal blade, combine Gouda cheese, cream cheese, honey, lemon juice and curry powder; process until smooth and well blended. Spoon cheese mixture into shell, mounding in center. Cover; refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight to blend flavors.

    For easier spreading, let cheese stand at room temperature for 1 hour before serving. To serve, place cheese on serving tray; surround with wedges of fresh peaches, pears, apple or pineapple, grapes and/or assorted crackers. Spread cheese on fruit or crackers.

  • Curry powder is a blend of spices invented by the English to approximate the many flavors found in Indian curry blends.
  • Apples and pears are plentiful this time of year, and they taste wonderful served with cheese. If you slice them ahead of time, place them in a bowl of water with a little lemon juice added to keep them from darkening. Pat them dry when you're ready to serve.
  • Make the Gouda cheese mixture one to two days ahead; cover and refrigerate it.
