Comment: Borrowed from a favorite cousin, this rich, flavorful and inexpensive spread is simple to make and is perfect for holiday or family gatherings. It can be prepared a day ahead, but for best flavor should be consumed within a couple of days. As with all liver-based dishes, the flavor becomes more pronounced over time.
Ingredients: 8 strips bacon 2 pounds chicken livers, drained 2 bay leaves 6 cloves fresh garlic, sliced 8 ounces Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened ¼ pound unsalted butter ¼ cup cognac or white wine
