Tasty, I used roquefort and wizzed all up together (not for too long) to make a yummy dip. Am going to try maling balls and rolling them in the nutas and apricots then serve on a bed of salad as a starter.

Could you perhaps substitute the butter for a soft cheese such as mascapone?

I made these for Xmas 2009 and they went down very well. Easy to do as well. I presented them in little ramekin dishes with the oatcakes from BBC Good Food as well and the two went very well together.

Made these little pots in ramekin dishes for Christmas 2007 for presents. I gave them freshly made, and they froze succesfully. My dad enjoyed this recipe so much, he has asked for a repeat Christmas present this year!!
