A Dip of Three Cheeses

A Dip of Three Cheeses


If you were to argue that the words “elegant” and “dip” can’t live side-by-side in harmony, well … you’d be wrong.

Ingredients
  1. 4 ounces medjool dates, about 8 large, pitted and roughly chopped
  2. 1/2 cup water
  3. 1/2 cup brandy
  4. 1/2 cup muscavado sugar
  5. 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  6. 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
  7. 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme
  8. 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  9. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  10. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  11. 6 ounces brie cheese, cut into chunks (see note)
  12. 4 ounces toasted walnuts
Instructions
  1. Combine the dates, water, brandy and sugar in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and reduce until dates are softened and mixture is syrup-thick, about 10 minutes.
  2. Cool completely. (This part can be made up to a week in advance.)
  3. Add the mascarpone, cream cheese, thyme, salt and pepper to slow cooker and whip with a hand mixer on medium speed.
  4. Fold in the brie, walnuts and date mixture and set the cooker to "low" for 1 hour. Stir and continue to maintain serving temp on the low or "warm" setting if available. Serve with toasted baguette.
Notes
  1. I love the funk the rind brings to the party so I never remove it. You can of course, but you'll need even more cheese to make up the total amount.

    My first attempt at making this was very tasty but the consistency seemed a bit off. In the slow cooker it just stayed very soupy and wasn’t great for dipping. But I saved the leftovers in the fridge then heated them up a few days later in a casserole by baking it in the oven and then just put it out for dipping and it was much thicker and better for the dipping. SUMMARY – make it, then chill it, then reheat it for better dipping-ness.
