Blue Cheese Pistachio Torta

Ingredients

Adapated from a recipe by Lauren Keating of Lauren’s restaurant

1 pound blue cheese, crumbled
½ pound unsalted butter at room temperature
½ pound cream cheese at room temperature
3 Tablespoons Marsala
¼ cup minced parsley
½ cup minced green onion
4 ounces chopped pistachio meats

Directions

Reserve half of the crumbled blue cheese. Using a paddle, combine half of the blue cheese with the butter, cream cheese, and Marsala in a mixer (a food processor will work). Mix until well combined. Add parsley and green onion, mix until evenly combined.

Layer in a 4 or 5 cup bowl, 3 times. Spread one third of the cheese mixture, then one third of the reserved crumbled blue cheese, then one third of the pistachios. Repeat 2 more times. Chill until firm. Serve with crackers or toasted baguette slices.
