From Linderhof’s Kitchen . . . Martha Meinsen Scott


This is the time of the year that often you need to take something to a party — “finger food” — as it is often called.     Although I have a lot of old favorites, I’m always looking for new recipes. I tasted this first at Kitchen Connections Holiday Open House in Nevada.    It’s one of those simple recipes that you just put together. Often you have all the ingredients on hand, however, I think it needs time to develop so I think it needs to be made a day ahead.




8 ounces softened cream cheese
8 ounces grated cheddar cheese
1 bunch green onions, chopped (unless you buy the big package, then use 6), white and green parts
1 ½ c. mayonnaise
½ c. orange marmalade
¼  cup toasted slivered almonds, chopped
Sliced almonds, for garnish


Mix together cream cheese, cheddar cheese, onions and mayonnaise. Add chopped almonds.     Put into a wide shallow dish. Sprinkle with sliced almonds.


Chill and serve with crackers (we prefer Ritz).
