8 ounces cream cheese
8 ounces sharp Cheddar 
1/4 teaspoon cayenne 
2 to 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
3 scallions, sliced 
Juice of 1/2 lemon 
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 
1/4 cup very finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley 
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill 
2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds 
Buttery crackers, such as Ritz, for serving 


  • Add the cream cheese, Cheddar, cayenne, Worcestershire, scallions, lemon juice and some salt and pepper to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is almost smooth; you still want a few bits of cheese in there. Remove with a rubber spatula to a piece of plastic wrap and wrap up the cheese mixture. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Shape the cheese mixture with your hands into a Christmas tree/cone using the plastic wrap to keep it together. Mix the chopped parsley and dill together on a plate or work surface. Coat the shaped cheese in the chopped herbs.
  • Transfer the cheese tree to the center of a platter. Decorate with the pomegranate seeds as ornaments. Serve with buttery crackers.
