An Awesome Cheese Dip/Spread for the Holidays

My mom made this a couple holidays ago and we finally found the recipe:

Sweet Cheese Wreath

from The Silver Palate's Good Times pg. 322

- In food processor (with a steel blade) put 1 lbs of softened cream cheese, 4 oz of softened unsalted butter, 1/2 cup maple syrup, and 1 tsp of cognac.

- Process until smooth

- Fold in 1 cup copped pecans.

- Add cheese mix to small ring mold with double cheesecloth. Pat down firmly and evenly.

- Cover and refrigerate overnight.

- Before serving turn out onto platter and peel off cheesecloth.

- Sprinkle with chopped pecans.
