READER REVIEW

 "I wanted to make something nice for my boyfriend, but don't know how to cook. This was perfect and easy!"

5 oz. double cream cheese 20 crackers 4 oz. raspberries 4 oz. olives ½ oz. strawberry preserves 5 oz. Dubliner cheese 4 oz. goat cheese

INGREDIENTS

1.

Place the double cream in the middle of the board, and gently press a heart-shaped cookie cutter into the center of the cheese. Just enough to cut the rind.

2.

Remove the cookie cutter, and use a small spoon to gently scoop the rind out.

3.

Fill the heart with preserves. I’ll sometimes use a toothpick to clean up the edges a bit.

4.

Place 5-6 crackers on each side of the cheese.

5.

Gently stack raspberries to the right. It’s ok if they fall a little, you can fix them when you add more crackers and cheese later.

6.

Add olives to the left of the crackers. Again, it’s ok if they tumble a bit. You can fix them once the other crackers and cheese are placed.

7.

Add 5 more crackers to the left of the olives and goat cheese on the end.

8.

Slice Dubliner cheese into snackable slices, and place a few more crackers to the right of the raspberries.

9.

To make it extra pretty, add a few flowers like waxflower, to the raspberries. You only need a few to make it look so delicate and romantic.
