      This recipe is FANTASIC! We've made it many times for family, friends, co-workers. Everyone raves about it, no exceptions! I recommend following the recipe as is. Substituting the pesto or sun-dried tomatoes is just a crime! We serve it with rice crackers (gluten allergy) and they are perfect for letting the fantastic flavors of this dish shine.

      I've made this several times. I've made it as the recipe calls, but have substituted as well. You can easily use walnuts instead of pine nuts. Regardless how you make it, I suggest placing it on a lovely dish and making the first cut BIG to show off the inside. Place a little on a cracker and leave it there - Once someone tastes it - They're hooked! NOTE: I would like to add that the Paula Deen's original recipe calls for 2 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese. Makes a big difference! http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/pesto-cheese-blossoms-recipe/index.html

      If you don't have a food processor, just buy a good pesto. The next time I make this I will make it in a rectangular shape... unmold it and sprinkle the top with paprika and parsely

      I tried this out on family at a recent party and it didn't go over very well. I am not sure if people didn't like it or just didn't want to cut it. I didn't quite follow the recipe though, I didn't think the family would be too keen on pesto, nor sun-dried tomatoes. So I chopped some fresh tomatoes, and used some dried italian seasoning and mixed both into the cream cheese ( I did not layer it, just mixed it all up) Also substituted walnuts for the pistachios since I already had some. I thought it was pretty tasty.

      Outstanding indeed. What a great appetizer this is. Beautiful presentation. I wouldn't change a think about this one. The flavors went perfect together with a slight spice to it. I added a little ground red pepper to the top as a garnish for some color. thanks so much little_wing.
