Blue Cheese Pecan Spread

Blue Cheese Pecan Spread

1 cup pecans
1 (8oz) package cream cheese, at room temperature
½ cup crumbled blue cheese
¼ cup snipped chives, divided
¼ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

Place the pecans in a dry skillet over medium heat. Stir often until fragrant and just toasted. Remove from the skillet and chop coarsely. Place the cream cheese and blue cheese in a food processor. Pulse until creamy and combined. Set aside 1 tablespoon chives and add the rest to the food processor with pepper. Pulse to combine. Add the pecans and pulse until just combined. (Don’t over process; you want the pecans in chunks).

Scrape into a small serving bowl or crock. Sprinkle the top with remaining chives. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with crackers.
