Add Cheddar Almond Cream Pie to Your Holiday Menu

It's Christmas Eve and many people are either hosting or going to holiday parties. Either way, you're going to need something sweet to satisfy your family and friends. Beth Prior from the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board dropped bye the NewsChannel 7 studios to help us plan our menus.

Cheddar almond cream pie with cranberry streusel may sound fancy but it’s super simple to make. The recipe calls for real Wisconsin butter and cheddar cheese to create the sweet and savory dessert. Simply use the basic pie crust recipe featured in Grate.Pair.Share Magazine and fill with cheese and almond cream and top with cranberries, almonds and brown sugar!

The pie crust recipe is simple to make – Wisconsin butter, flour, sugar, salt and water. Mix the dough 30 minutes ahead of time and refrigerate to allow the crust to set up. Or, freeze this dough for up to 2 months! Each batch makes 2, 9 inch crusts, perfect for your holiday baking needs!

The Holiday edition of Grate.Pair.Share also features great recipes for every occasion – parties, brunches and special holiday dinners. Features include ideas for brunch – including egg stratas and scones; cheesy holiday side dishes, cheese pairings and of course – pies! Other pie recipes include Pear, Walnut and Blue Cheese Tart, Creamy Chocolate Tart with Parmesan Walnut Crust and Brie and Brandied Apricot Hand Pies. Any one of these recipes will save the day with real Wisconsin Cheese!
