Perfect Blend recipe

Black Pepper "Cream Cheese"

For those who do not eat dairy but love the taste and texture of cheese, nut cheese provides a great alternative. Nut cheeses are becoming more popular and are now commercially produced, but it’s easy to make your own at home. Black pepper "cream cheese" is a versatile and spreadable "cheese" that works well from morning to night. Make this for your next party as an alternative on your cheese plate, a sandwich spread, or serve it for breakfast with bagels and lox. The nutty, creamy, spicy combination complements an array of foods.
