This is 

Cheese Spread decorated like pine cones.- so neat for Christmas!


5 Slices of Bacon (cooked & crumbled)
1.5 cups of whole almonds (toasted)
8 oz. Cream Cheese (softened)
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon chopped green onion
1/2 Teaspoon dried dill
Pinch of fresh ground black pepper
Several Fresh Rosemary Sprigs
Crackers of your choice


  1. Fry Bacon ~ Drain, crumble, and set aside.
  2. Toast Almonds ~ Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees Celsius). Arrange almonds on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, watching carefully and stirring occasionally to prevent burning. Remove from oven, and set aside to cool.
  3. In a bowl, mix together softened cream cheese, mayonnaise, green onions, dill weed, and black pepper until well blended. Form mixture into a pinecone shape, and carefully place on a serving dish.
  4. Beginning at the top of the "pinecone" with the points facing upward, press cooled almonds gently into cheese, each point slightly overlapping the bottom of the almond above.
  5. Garnish with Fresh Rosemary Sprigs.
  6. Serve with your favorite crackers.
