Special ExtraUse a nicely shaped 2-cup terrine or mold in place of the bowl. Be sure to line it with plastic wrap before filling with cream cheese mixture. After unmolding, smooth any irregularities with small knife or spatula.
Variation NoteCream cheese mixture can be prepared using a food processor instead of the electric mixer.
SubstitutePrepare as directed, using Neufchatel cheese and/or grainy Dijon mustard.
