"Our river town is in the heart of wine country. I spent summers in the field picking grapes and autumns working as a tour guide at the wineries. This is where and when my love for autumn, food and social gatherings began. This simple appetizer is a wonderful complement to wine."

Ingredients

1/2 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup light mayonnaise
4 ounces cream cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup seedless blackberry jam

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spread pecans on a baking sheet and toast 10 to 15 minutes. Watch carefully to prevent burning. Set aside to cool.
  2. Combine mayonnaise, cream cheese, mozzarella, Cheddar cheese and green onions. Spread in a shallow dish or pie plate. Refrigerate 1 hour to set slightly. Remove from refrigerator, sprinkle with toasted pecans and spread jam evenly over top. Serve with an assortment of crackers.
