Step 1

With electric mixer, mix first 6 ingredients till well blended. Transfer to serving platter with a rubber spatula. Form into the shape of a pinecone. Beginning at the bottom pointy end, place almonds, staggering each row going toward the top, so they look like a pinecone (see photo). Cut rosemary sprig to about 2-3" long, removing some of the needles from the bottom end and place in the top. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for several hours to let flavors meld. Serve with your favorite crackers or on crostini. Keep refrigerated if not used up, covered with plastic wrap.
