5 Ingredient Savory Christmas Torte

The ultimate easy holiday appetizer recipe, this Christmas Torte makes a beautiful, savory addition to any holiday party.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons pesto sauce
  • 1 cup packed basil leaves
  • 1 jar sun-dried tomato halves, drained well

Instructions

  1. Line a small bowl with plastic wrap (be sure to leave enough wrap to hang over the sides.)
  2. Add cream cheese and feta to bowl of a food processor and pulse until combined. Remove mixture to a separate bowl. Spoon 1/3 of mixture into bottom of lined bowl, spreading evenly to edges.
  3. Add pesto and basil to food processor; pulse until combined and spread evenly to edges over cream cheese layer in lined bowl. Top with another 1/3 of cream cheese mixture, spreading evenly to edges.
  4. Add sundried tomato halves to food processor; pulse until combined and spread evenly to edges over cream cheese layer in lined bowl. Top with remaining 1/3 of cream cheese mixture, spreading evenly to edges.
  5. Wrap up edges of wrap over top of torte and press firmly (add additional wrap if needed to ensure torte is completely covered.) Refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours.
  6. To serve, remove any extra wrap placed over top of bowl. Invert onto serving platter. Lift off bowl and carefully remove wrap. Serve with crackers.

Notes

Note: The cream cheese mixture spreads best when it’s at room temperature or evenly slightly warm. To help spreading, I often use an offset spatula rinsed with warm water.
