Directions:
Let pkgs. of cream cheese soften to stirable stage (I sometimes soften in microwave)
Add blue cheese and mix well
Put mixture on serving plate and form in an oval shape but form one end into a point.
Layer almonds in rows by starting at the point and sticking one end in the formed cheese mixture.
Continue layering until you reach the top. Chill for a couple of hours before serving. I usually make this the day before it's needed. Add a small sprig of plastic pine at the top. Place small crackers on plate around pine cone and serve.
