    Does anyone have this recipe handy? Oh how I wish I had the Celebrate cookbook! Someone at my cluster meeting made this last night ~ it is not only BEAUTIFUL to look at, it is AMAZING to eat!

    Thanks in advance!

    Found it - this is shaped like a dome (using the batter bowl), in the Celebrate cookbook

    Layered Athenian Cheese Spread

    With holiday spirit, this molded cheese spread combines tender spinach, sweet red peppers and tangy feta and cream cheeses for all-out great flavor.

    Prep time: 20 minutes

    Chill time: 3 hours

    2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened

    2 packages (4 ounces each) crumbled feta cheese

    1 garlic clove, pressed

    1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained

    1 jar (7 ounces) sweet roasted red peppers, drained and patted dry

    1/3 cup whole natural almonds, chopped

    Canapé French Bread (recipe follows), toasted

    Combine cream cheese and feta cheese in Classic Batter Bowl. Press garlic over cheese mixture using Garlic Press; mix well. Stir in spinach.

    Chop red peppers using Food Chopper. Line Small Batter Bowl with plastic wrap; divide cheese mixture in half. Press half of the cheese mixture into small batter bowl; top with red peppers. Spread remaining cheese mixture over red peppers. Cover; refrigerate several hours to allow flavors to blend.

    To serve, invert onto serving plate. Remove plastic wrap. Chop almonds with food chopper; press onto top of molded cheese. Serve with toasted Canapé French Bread (p. 25) or assorted crackers.
