Your guests will hesitate to break into this elegant-looking creation, but once they start there'll be no stopping them. Spreads very easily.
1/2 pound blue cheese
1/2 cup apple juice
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup toasted chopped almonds
Crumble the cheese in a small bowl and cover with apple juice; refrigerate overnight. Drain off the juice and mix the cheese with butter until smooth.
Shape into a ball and sprinkle all over with almonds. Chill. Remove from the refrigerator one hour before serving, and let stand at room temperature.
Serve as a spread for Melba toast or small pieces of crusty French bread.
