~ Blue Cheese Ricotta Dip ~


1 15-ounce container ricotta cheese 
8 ounces blue cheese,  crumbled (2 cups) 
2 T. apple cider (can use milk)
Freshly ground black pepper 
Snipped fresh chives or your favorite herb 

Green and/or red apple slices 
Breadsticks, crackers, pita chips ~ your choice! 


Allow ricotta and blue cheese to stand at room temperature for 1 hour. In a medium bowl stir together the cheeses, mashing with a fork until well combined. Stir in the apple cider. Add pepper to taste. Spoon into a serving bowl. Sprinkle with chives or garnish as desired.  You can form the mixture into the desired shape that you prefer. It's fun to try for a pumpkin this time of year!  I use a cake pan that I bought when I was working at Williams-Sonoma for awhile.
