Ingredients:
1 Package (8 ounces) Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup shredded sharp white cheddar
3/4 cup crumbled Point Reyes Blue Cheese
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until creamy. Next, fold in the cheddar cheese and blue cheese. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours. Meanwhile, in a pan, saute the curry powder in the butter for 1 minute, then add the pecans, cooking and stirring for 2 minutes. Mix in parsley. Let cool. Take your cheese mixture from the refrigerator and roll into 2- 5 inch logs or one large log. Roll cheese log(s) in the pecan mixture coating evenly. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
