Holiday Pine Cone

This recipe comes from my sister Corinne who picked it up from some unknown source. The makings from this recipe can be used to make a delightful decorative piece for the winter holiday table. The dip itself is to be molded into the shape of a pine cone and decorated with almonds to emulate the pine cone seeds.
  • One 8 ounce package of cream cheese
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 5 slices crispy fried bacon
  • 1 T. chopped green onion or chives
  • ½ tsp. dill weed
  • Pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Chill overnight. Once the dip has chilled, merely form it into a pine cone shape and press the roasted almonds into the shape at angles forming concentric rows. Garnish the "pine cone" with sprigs of real pine leaves and a red ribbon bow for an extraordinary holiday display, and an extraordinary holiday treat. Serve with an assortment of your favorite crackers.
  • Yields: 8 servings
  • Preparation Time: 30 minutes
