Red, White, and Blue Canapés

A favorite appetizer for informal and formal parties, the mixture of red, white, and blue colors of this canapé make it perfect for a Fourth of July fete. This blue cheese mixture is very versatile and is excellent in a wide variety of dishes…try it melted over fillet mignon or over hot pasta. It also makes a wonderful appetizer with sliced pears, crackers, or bread slices. The blue cheese mixture freezes very well for up to a month. Thaw in the refrigerator for several hours before returning it to room temperature for serving.

8 ounces softened cream cheese
3 tablespoons softened butter
2 ounces crumbled blue cheese

Mix together the cream cheese, butter, blue cheese, and walnuts until smooth in a small bowl. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours, and up to three days. Let the mixture return to room temperature for about 30-45 minutes before serving. Core and slice the apples before serving. Spread about a tablespoon of the blue cheese mixture on each apple slice and place on a serving platter. Serve immediately.
